Pair of stipples with hand colour, with very large margins. Each 330 x 360mm (13 x 14¼".
Two scenes from Isabelle de Montolieu's novel 'Caroline of Lichtfield': a young married woman falls for a handsome soldier, but realises he is less worthy of her affections than her older, less dashing husband. These stipples were published a year after the publication of Thomas Holcroft’s English translation. Montolieu also translated Jane Austen’s 'Sense and Sensibility' and 'Persuasion' into French.
