The Literary Cur! [&] The Nautical Cur!
1839 [dated in plate.]
Lithograph, two images to one sheet. Sheet 380 x 275mm, 15 x 10¾".
Two caricatures showing dogs in human guises: one shows an elderly man sitting writing with a quill in a book in his Library/Study; the other a sailor in his dingy at sea. They are visual puns on the double meaning of the "cur" (popular slang for a mongrel dog and a disreputable person) of the captions.
