Notes
Content : Printed on image: "… The East Indian rajah's slipper is noticeable from its shape, still more from its great antiquity … // The paddle-like toe of the slipper of Edward IV of England is terribly suggestive of an attempt to conceal some unpleasant freak of nature. It has been said that the very wide shoe favored by Henry VIII owed its adoption to misshaped feet, but this is untrue. Not only was the style in vogue before his day, but it is well-attested fact that, until age and riotous living rendered him hideous, bluff Hal was really a type of manly beauty …" Written on border: "Jan 1891."
