Spooner's Magic Prints. No.2.Which, when gently heated before a Fire, will undergo a complete transformation [...]
Hand coloured lithograph, sheet 145 x 170mm. 5¾ x 6¾". Good colour; margins a little trimmed.
A windmill in an apparently snow-covered landscape which, as the inscription explains, will transform into a summer scene when viewed in front of strong light. This is due to the application of certain pigments in the colouring, which may still be activated. From a series by the innovative publisher of games, satires and puzzles William Spooner (1833 - 1847; fl.).
