Set of 12 engravings with large margins. Each c. 175 x 280mm (7 x 11"), stitched on left edge, as issued. Edges worn and toned.
Set of twelve plates, numbered 1-12, reproducing two of Hogarth's most celebrated series. Soon after the death of William Hogarth in 1764, his widow Jane gave the London publisher Robert Sayer permission to publish a collection of her husband's work. Although engraved in a smaller format, Sayer's versions retain all the detail of the original plates.
