STARR WOOD (1870-1944) SIGNED ORIGINAL PENCIL, PEN, BLACK INK GAG CARTOON, “Starr Wood”, 12.5 x 10, on heavy card stock, by 19th-early 20th century British Punch cartoonist. This cartoon shows a hotel guest complaining at the front desk. Wood's handwritten caption (the publisher would later set it in type) reads: “I wish to complain. My light won’t switch on, my window won’t open and my door won’t shut.” “My word! Some people think an hotel is run for their convenience!” There are a few publisher/printer notations in pencil, general age toning, a stain in the upper right margin that could be matted out, otherwise in fine condition.

STARR WOOD turned freelance cartoonist after his first drawing was published in 1892. In addition to his Punch cartoons he contributed to several other British publications, including: Chums, Fun, Judy, Chips, Parade, John Bull, Bystander, Humorist, Passing Show, Tatler and Strand from 1898-1938.
