Product Description

A satire on the debating society that called itself ├▒The Robin Hood Society├« which had been founded in 1747 but had been long the subject of ridicule – the common accusation being that the members were ignorant, atheistic, and ignorant tradesmen. The illustration shows the speaker, Jeffrey Dunstan, the eccentric wig seller and Mayor of Garrett, speaking before a group and in front of the chairman. BM. No. 6331
