Eleven leaves of precise and incisive pen and ink caricatures of those involved in the courts and in medicine, with sixteen original caricatures in all. Folio, 37 by 27 cm. Also lovely bird, butterfly and foliate vignettes ornamenting the three first pages without caricatures. The court characters include the judge, the barrister, the crier of the court, the attorney, the plaintiff, the defendant, witnesses for each, the bailiff's follower and the sheriff. The medical cast is comprised of the apothecary, the physician, the quack doctor, the patient, the medical student and the surgeon. The writing is by a calligraphic hand, and this is applied both to the flowery dedicatory and introductory pages and the sharp captioned text.
