Description

Rose Cecil O'Neill (1874-1944) was the first female illustrator of Puck magazine and the creator of the enormously successful Kewpies comics. Her first self-illustrated novel, The Loves of Edwy (1904), was described by the New York Times as "tragedy done in a procession of jests. One should read it in that mellow estate of sentiment, which lies between tears and laughter and induces, moreover, a sort of inversion of things by which you laugh at the weeping place.
