Oblong, 25 by 36 cm. Six hand-colored etched plates, each with a multitude of vignettes or comic cells poking fun at the fast pace of cultural change in everything from fashion to music-making, dancing, smoking, drinking, love-making, etc. A fabulous telescope on the cultural tumult of early 19th Century in England. Abbey 299. Condition: backstrip replaced. Occasional light soiling. Modern dedicated clamshell box has morocco spine label and a substantial presence, and thus is an excellent repository for this otherwise limp booklet.
