Product Description

A satire on clandstine love, whereby a fat and buxom woman is making advances to a young footman whilst her angry husband is peeping into the room. An ape is holding forth a copy of Pope’s “Essay of Man” referring to Pope’s poem which is then obliquely referring to Wilkes’s “Essay on Woman” which had just been published. See BM. No. 4615 for a later version (c1770)
