Hand colored lithograph, image size (to neat line) 10 1/2 x 14 1/4 inches on sheet 13 1/2 x 17 inches, centrefold as issued. Light toning and a few very light foxing spots, good very displayable condition. An uncommon image of vegetables (blank verso). On the left side of the sheet is an artichoke head and a rhubarb stalk, on the right a pea and runner bean.
