An 18th century mezzotint droll 'Printed for Bowles & Carver.......published Jan.1795'. 'Neck-or-Nothing' a literary reference of the time approximating to 'a very sporty young nobleman'. Original colouring and within the original ebonized moulding frame.

The mezzotint droll was generally sold for a shilling plain, two shillings coloured; they were usually non-political, exploiting amusing social situations, such as the pretensions of the city nouveau riche, rather than topical events.
