23 by 17 cm, stab bound above by ribbon. 11 card leaves, including front cover, all painted, mostly with silhouettes. Front cover, with a period aesthetic style design, has Greek ornamentation and other period vignette illustrations, does not have silhouette illustrations, and a few elements of illustration elsewhere are not silhouette. That said, we count 26 silhouette illustrations, which count might be adjusted slightly up or down on one's judgment of whether something is a separate illustration or not, with a few additional silhouette drawings on the chemise slipcase. Generally the illustrations are clever and humorous, and the combination of those on a single leaf can relate a coherent narrative like a comic strip, a form that had as yet not been created in newspapers but which did have prior roots, most notably with Topffer's comical multi-cell illustrations. Condition: slipcase ribbon edge somewhat tattered and partly loose on bottom edge. Considerable wear and spotting on this slipcase, yet its pictorial integrity remains well preserved. Ribbon used to bind the manuscript proper replaced. Cloth used along upper edge as repair material to recreate holes of stab binding.
