A gentleman's boot straps snap, resulting in the figure on the left, who kneels before him, receiving a kick in the mouth, his top hat falling from his head from the impact. Three paintings on the wall behind are titled, 'Tombeau de Napoleon', 'Tarquin le Superbe' and 'Denis Tyran de Syracuse'. A plate from 'Album pour Rire' or, 'Album for Laughs', published by French printers Hautcoeur-Martinet, 1832. The plates for 'Album pour Rire' were issued separately and never collected into and sold as a single volume.
