Woodward delin. Etch.d by Roberts.
London Pub.d as the Act directs Sep.t 1st 1801 by P. Roberts Middle Row Holborn. Pub.d by T. Tegg 111. Cheapside. Jan.y 1. 1807
Etching with hand colour. 260 x 355mm (10¼ x 14"). Framed. Unexamined out of frame.
A satire on the dangers of travel by canal. A weeping wife and daughter try to prevent a husband embarking on a canal boat, despite the husband having 'bought a pair of trowsers to look like a sailor'. The wife urges him to 'go quietly back in the Coach', thus avoiding the 'hugly coal barges'. The plate was originally published by the engraver Piercy Roberts. This example is an early Tegg issue, as examples exist with the Roberts publication line removed and a plate numbers replacing 'U' top right.
Not in BM satires, but see BM 1985,0119.182.
