Plate 52 'Eccentric Excursions or Literary & Pictorial Sketches of Countenance, Character & Country, in different parts of England & South Wales.............' Two heads face each other in profile, one (left) of a young man in cap and gown, with his hair curling on his shoulders, and a cheerful expression. The other (right) of the same man transformed: his hair is strained back from a receding forehead and smoothly tucked under the high collar of his coat. He wears bands and looks down sourly with protruding underlip. One wears a frilled cravat, the other clerical bands. 14 January 1797 Hand-coloured etching Isaac Cruikshank the Elder after George Moutard Woodward. Few blemishes top left corner.
