- Curator's comments
- From a series of twenty-one plates on the story of Til Eulenspiegel. The four scenes are printed on a single sheet from a single plate. Each, however, has the address of Lagniet, which makes it clear that they were intended for cutting up. The plates are found in copies of Lagniet's 'Recueil des plus illustres proverbes divises en trois livres', issued in the 1660s (a copy is in the BL, G.11344).
