Pedestrianism, or Foote Travelling.(Scene_Dover.)
Published by Hunt, 18, Tavistock Stt., Covent Garden [n.d., c.1826].
Hand-coloured etching with aquatint, 275 x 205mm. 10¾ x 8". Some creasing. Full margins.
Social satire: a walker conversing in jocular fashion with a cook in a kitchen. Apparently about travel, his speech contains puns, one alluding to the skewered joint of meat the cook is about to spit roast on the fire. After M Egerton (1821 - 1827; fl.), humorous designer and social satirist; apparently an amateur since he often signs as 'Esq'.
