    Advertised in 'Mercure de France', 30 June 1787, as follows: 'Estampe de 21 pouces de large sur 11 et demi de haut. Prix 12 liv. A Paris, cour du Louvre, la cinquième porte à gauche en entrant par la colonnade, au premier. Cette estampe, du genre grotesque, a du piquant et de l'originalité. Les figures en sont nombreuses, variées et divertissentes.'
    It is a pair to a print entitled 'Promenade du Jardin du Palais-Royal' (1787) engraved by Lecoeur, but sometimes wrongly attributed to Debucourt himself.
