A damned lawyer riding a horse backwards on his way to Hell, accompanied by the Four Riders of the Apocalypse, with a quotation from Hamlet, play by William Shakespeare: 'Where be his quiddits now? his quillets? his cases? his tenures? and his tricks? Why does he suffer this rude knave to knock him about the sconce with a rotten jaw bone, and will not tell him of his action of battery?'

'To Your Health, Civilisation!', 1916. Artist: Louis Raemaekers
'To Your Health, Civilisation!', 1916. Plate 72 from The Great War: A Neutral's Indictment by Louis Raemaekers. The Dutch graphic artist Louis Raemaekers (1869-1956) produced fiercely anti-German cartoons during the First World War. The Germans offered a substantial reward for him, dead or alive, and the Dutch government, under pressure from Germany, placed Raemaekers on trial on a charge of endangering Dutch neutrality. He was acquitted, but fled to England because of the bounty on his head.
