Abstract:
"Uniform with the series of 'Drolls', imprint and number cropped. Heading to printed verses (16 ll.): 'Sung with unbounded Applause by Mr. Fawcett, in the New Comic Opera of "Two Faces under a Hood"'. Fawcett as Paris, in Spanish costume, sits on a rock, holding the apple, surrounded by three young women wearing limp high-waisted gowns; Pallas has a bonnet shaped like a light-horse helmet, and holds a parasol. Beside him is his dog with a collar inscribed 'Paris'. In the background (r.) a fat officer and a taller lady walk arm-in-arm."--British Museum online catalogue.
