Hand colored. To the right of caption are initials "W. E.". Image shows two fat-tailed politicians sycophantically seeking support from Lurcher the rat catcher who stands w/ a cage of rats in hand in front of the two uncaged rats. This is an extraordinary item. Appears to be genuine, very modestly foxed, corners mended, top edge lightly frayed. At top right corner appears "86" (part of series) while verso has ink # 47. The price (then) one shilling (coloured). Although George Cruikshank worked with Tegg, there's no clue to support G.C. as artist for this image. Partial scan presented here. (6001913823)
(Price reflects 50% discount.)

Price = 75.00 USD
