A hand-coloured engraved cartoon entitled, 'A Visit to the Boarding School'.
No publisher or date, but circa 1825. The engraving pokes fun at the ignorance of the aspiring parents of Miss Dorothy, who has recently been admitted to a school for young ladies, by recourse to a play on words: The tomb of Werter/ The tub of water. There is a printed number, 183 in the extreme left-hand corner which would suggest that this is part of a series. 20 x 25 cm's. Trimmed to platemark; evidence of removal from an album on blank verso; else very good.
