A Marriage Feast. A Parody.

Dublin: Hibernia Magazine, [circa 1810-11].

Uncut, engraved sheet in the shape of a hand fan (32.5 x 50 cm.). Printed verso only. A parodic table setting.

The names of the dishes reveal the conceit, with “Devine Part of a Man Boiled” and “An Unruly Member Garnished”. Mounted in a simple matte. Light creases at folds lines, otherwise fine.
