I believe I have the original of this cartoon. The tall officer is Ernest Bryant, my grandfather. The picture hung in my grandmother's house in Tunbridge Wells (UK) and I now have it on display at my home in Suffolk

Hi there I have a copy of Light Diet which was signed for my grandfather in August 1919. Am trying to find out about the artist and if there is any value to this book.
are you able to give me any information regarding this book. It is signed by the artist Geo S Richardson.
