London. Pubd. by S. & J. Fuller. Temples of Fancy, 34 Rathbone Place. [n.d. c.1840.]
Very fine hand-coloured lithograph. 242 x 317mm. 9½ x 12½". Some soiling around the edges.
A man reclining in his chair has fallen asleep. Surrounding him are cupids poking him with their arrows of love, inducing dreams of his pleasures and pastimes as a batchlor, instead of convincing him to fall in love. His arms folded across his heart suggest that his heart is not up for grabs! Originally issued as one of a pair.
for the pair (with 'Heart Stealing. I've Got It') see ref. 9369
