Missionary Instruction, or a Black Joke.
Hand coloured woodcut and letterpress, sheet 155 x 190mm. 6 x 7½". Trimmed to printed border and around title.
Profoundly non-PC social satire: a bibulous European missionary, enjoying alcoholic refreshment at a table, questions an eager but dim-witted African boy and receives a perplexing answer. From the series 'Marks's New Caricaturist' by J Lewis Marks (1814 - 1848; fl.).
