From the fashion magazine 'Le Follett Courrier des Salons', it was published in London in 1833 by J Page, 112 Fetter Lane.
It features six delightful illustrations of pretty young ladies displaying bonnets, both from the front and back. They are numbered 1 2 & 3.
The sheet itself is numbered 256 and the description beneath reads: Modes..ou s'abonne Magasin de Musique, Boulevart, des Italiens, passage de L'Opera number 2.
Beneath this there is a description in French of each of the lovely hats and where it can be obtained.
Measuring 6" x 9" it is blank verso, with slight corner bends, age foxing and two small tears in the left margin edge which will matt out with careful framing.
Considering the engraving is more than 170 years old it is in good Antique condition.
