Etching with letterpress text in three columns.
At lower right: Printed by J. Smeeton, 148, St. Martin's Lane.
Library's copy trimmed with loss of imprint.
Heading to a broadside, printed in three columns: the lengthy speeches (evidently by G. Woodward) of the two pleaders, 'Snip' and 'Galen Glauber'. Print shows the judge of the court sitting in an armchair on a low dais, a gouty leg resting on a cushion, holding his nose in pained disgust. On the left a tailor in shirt-sleeves snips his shears angrily at the doctor, who stands (right) hat in hand holding up a pair of breeches on the end of his cane. On the wall (left) are bulky volumes: 'Game Laws', 'Folio XI', 'Vagrant Act', 'Penal Laws', 'Blackton [sic] Vol 2'. In the accompanying text, the tailor complains that the doctor refuses to pay for the breeches, the doctor answers 'this precipitate Maniac', asserting that the tightness of the waist-band induced a complaint which rendered them 'too foetid for further Use'.
