[A Cottager Going to Market.] [&] [A Cottager Returned from Market.]
[Published April 1. 1800, by James Ward & Co. No. 6, Newman Street, London.]
Pair of mezzotints. Each sheet 440 x 560mm (17¼ x 22"). Trimmed to plate on three sides, to image at bottom, losing titles and inscriptions, a few small worm holes, backed with newspape. However fine impressions.
Two scenes outside a thatched cottage: in the morning a cart horse stands ready harnessed and a man pulls on his boots, while his wife pours an alcoholic drink from a bottle; later in the day the family unload their purchases while a large sow look on.
