A Capital Joke [&] No Effect.
Scarce pair of social satires, fine coloured lithographs on J. Whatman wove paper watermarked 1825. Each sheet c.155 x 240mm. 6 x 9½". First print with faint water stain upper right; in fresh contemporary hand colour.
The first composition shows a group of gentleman arranged around a dinner table with their wine glasses charged laughing uproariously; in the second a young bachelor with a broad grin is evidently not entertaining three young ladies and their mother or governess with his conversation.
Not in BM.
