Black and white landscape drawing of a little girl, her mother and a trio of goats. In the drawing, the little girl and her mother are standing under an apple tree. The little girl holds her apple above her head as she attempts to ward off three goats intent on stealing her apple. The trio of apple thieves stand just slightly shorter than the little girl but it is clear that they intimidate her even though they look more friendly than fierce.
I love it when I find vintage materials like 1890 Baby’s Annual Pictures and Stories for Little People. It was published oh so long ago that it is now completely in the public domain. It’s too bad the original artist(s) weren’t identified but that is why this book falls under the 120 years post publication aspect of copyright law.
This image is copyright free and in the public domain anywhere that extends copyrights 70 years after death or at least 120 years after publication when the original illustrator is unknown.
