Keep Within Compass And You Shall be Sure, To Escape Many Troubles That Others Endure. [A pair.]
London: William Darton, Wholesale Map & Print Seller, 58, Holborn Hill [n.d., c.1840].
An extremely rare pair of coloured engravings with etching. Framed, sight sizes 250 x 200mm (9¾ x 8"). Unexamined out of frame, but likely trimmed. Some damage.
Representations of a virtuous man and woman standing underneath the arc of an extended pair of compasses with 'Fear God' on the cross bar. These are a fine examples of English 'popular' prints, which would have served as an aid to the moral education of the young, presented in contemporary maple frames.
