Print includes a design in two compartments: in the first, at left, a well-dressed man, in profile to the right, grasps a woman's right arm, while he cuts her dress in several places, the slits being stained with blood. She holds a large muff. Behind is a street door (in Pall Mall) inscribed 'Angersteein'; on the side of the house and in the extreme upper left corner of the design is a bill: 'Monster A Reward \ 100 ...' Beneath the title is etched: 'This likeness of him was Drawn by a Lady who he had wounded and Approved by two others'; the second image at right shows the interior of a brazier's shop. A lady stands before the kneeling brazier who is hammering together the back seam of a short copper petticoat. The woman wears a hat and a chemise and holds an oval mirror which reflects her uncovered breasts; she looks over her right shoulder. On the wall is a placard: 'Ladies Bottoms Covered on the most Reasonable Terms also Kept in repair by the Year by Anti: Monster'. Behind the brazier (left) is the shop-window in which are displayed (above) three bell-shaped copper petticoats inscribed respectively: 'for young Ladies of 15', 'Ladies of 30', and 'Very fat Ladies'.
