(Ireland, William Henry.) [Something concerning Nobody.][Edited by Somebody. Embellished with fourteen characteristic etchings.]
[London: Robert Scholey, 1814.]
Fourteen sepia etchings (complete, including frontispiece) attributed to George Moutard Woodward (c.1760 - 1809), glued into green paper pamphlet, front wrapper annotated in ink. Only edition, 8vo (210 x 135mm, 8¼ x 5¼"). Etchings trimmed within platemarks (lacking text and original binding).
Each captioned plate shows the 'Nobody' character - a large head on small shoulders placed on his legs so that he has no body - in different everyday situations. A real curiosity.
