Description of work

'Using a wood engraving block because it is the last illustration in the Folio Society's edition of 'Tristram Shandy' & is of Walter Shandy's bull who has sadly failed in his duties. I inked up the block & overprinted it eight times using three different blacks - Ivy, Midnight & Seville. 'A COCK & a BULL, said Yorick - and one of the best of its kind I ever heard.' I also enclose the actual engraving printed once.'
