From 1894 Victorian England here is a charming magazine cover of "Harper's Young People".
The engraving, by Margaret E. Sangster, illustrates the poem, "Comrades" (I've transcribed it at the end of the listing). The paper measures 7.125" x 11.125" (20x28 cm) and there are no tears, creases, marks, or folds.
A delightful Victorian engraving - darling to frame for your Victorian bedroom or bath, perfect to frame for your little one's room, perfect for your art.

'Comrades' by Margaret E. Sangster
Here is our picture, Jocko and I
Stood without winking or blinking,
Just like two statues under the sky.
I don't know of what Jocko was thinking,
But I must confess that I felt quite fine
That we could be taken together;
I'm Jocko's comrade, and he is mine,
And we face all sorts of weather.
Never mind *me*, fellows: I'm just a boy;
But look at my dog, and tell me
If you don't envy me some of the joy
That one day of days befell me
When Jocko came straight to my hand held out
And into it, most sedately,
Dropped that great muzzle; no growl or pout,
But, great as a king, and stately!
Talk of your pets! He's more than a pet!
He's a comrade, true as a brother!
With a big brave soul, that's too proud to fret,
That wouldn't change me for another!
Jolly? Of course, for the road we take
The rough or the smooth glad-hearted!
See, what a beautiful picture we make,
We two who refuse to be parted.
