[Pub by T. McLean 26 Haymarket.] [n.d., c.1829.]
Coloured etching. Sheet 235 x 340mm (9¼ x 13¼), watermarked 1827. Trimmed into printed border, affecting monogram & publication line, mounted in album paper.
Contrasting the differences in ladies's fashion of different centuries. William Heath (1794-1840) used the pseudonym Paul Pry (the name of a character John Poole's 1825 comedy, a very inquisitive person) between 1827-9, with a monogram of emblem of a small man holding a walking stick. However this figure began to be copied by other caricaturists (including Sharpshooter ) and so Heath reverted to his own name. A companion print to item ref: 36734.
BM: Not in.
