Seller ID 006190
Scarce, and unusual, caricature metamorphic of fisherman with 28 different heads! Measuring 32 by 25 cm. This is numbered no. 8 in what must have been a series issued by R. Evan Sly in the 1840s. This, and any other in such a series, we could not find in OCLC First Search nor in the British Library catalogues. Condition: repair to the backing sheet and the volvelle. Light-ish soiling in the margins, and other minor wear. No issues with the volvelle's functionality.
