Unattributed.  "A Country Attorney and his Clients."

London: Bowles & Carver, early nineteenth century. Etching and aquatint. 12 5/8 x 9 3/4. Strong hand color. Trimmed to platemark, with small chip at right. "553" in lower left corner. Very good condition.

A delightful image of a country lawyer shown in his office receiving clients. Though some coins lie on the desk, the clients all are bringing in goods--a rabbit and a basket of game--to trade for his services. Papers related to cases lie on the floor and hang from the walls, and the attorney's brief-bag lies at his feet. Two large volumes appear on a book shelf, Strange Reports and Burn's Justice, and a map (perhaps of England) hangs below. Beautifully produced and a charming scene.
