Date suggested by Isaac and by BM record for another popular print by Davison.
Sheet trimmed within plate mark at head of image.
No. 29 printed at upper right.
After Hogarth's print of the same title.
Print shows a Columbus seated at a table and demonstrating to a group of variously vexed or amused onlookers the means whereby an egg may be made to stand by breaking it. In the foreground, the table is set with a platter of eggs and eels, and a dog stands with his front feet on the table's edge.
