Coloured lithograph. Sheet 381 x 241mm. 15 x 9½". Cut and laid on scrap sheet. Some spotting.
A town crier dressed as Napoleon, reading from a sheet in his left hand and ringing his bell in his right. Sporting a red and blue tail-jacket, and a bicorn with a fluffy blue, red and white feather. A sword hangs from the sash across his chest. Town criers were the means of communication with the people of the town, as most people could not read nor write.
