Strange and intriguing lithographed personification print showing a man turned into a series of roosters, hens, nesting birds, egrets, and waterfowl.
This lithograph was made by a series of prints made for Purcell's Lithographic Drawing Book, which now appears to be known in no examples.
The image was lithographed by George E. Madeley after a drawing by George Spratt. Spratt and Madeley made another collection of personification prints, entitled "Figures of Fun."
Original hand-color. Laid on a larger sheet of paper.
