Summary

Summary

A rich source of striking imagery, this compilation of 163 black-and-white prints was reproduced from a rare collection of 18th-century broadsides. Illustrations include folkloric characters (Peggy Bacon-face, Bet Boozer, Sir John Falstaff) as well as animals, ships, soldiers, traditional English heroes and members of the royal family, and other distinctive graphics.
