Eleven leaves of precise and incisive pen and ink caricatures of those involved in the courts and in medicine, with sixteen original caricatures in all. Folio, 37 by 27 cm. Also lovely bird, butterfly and foliate vignettes ornamenting the three first pages without caricatures. The court characters include the judge, the barrister, the crier of the court, the attorney, the plaintiff, the defendant, witnesses for each, the bailiff's follower and the sheriff. The medical cast is comprised of the apothecary, the physician, the quack doctor, the patient, the medical student and the surgeon.

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
