Author: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827,

Within a curtained four-poster (left) an aged man is asleep, his feet projecting from under the bed-clothes towards the spectator. On the floor are his hat, shoes, and breeches on which sleeps a cat. There is a high-backed armchair (left) which is also a commode. Over the fireplace hangs a blunderbuss. Below the design: 'Waking in the middle of the night in a state of raging thirst eagerly blundering in the dark to the washing stand and there finding the broad mouthed pitcher which you lift to your lips, so full that besides amply satisfying your thirst, it keeps cooling your heated body, and purifying your linen with the overplus."--British Museum online catalogue.

Author: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827,
Description: "Frontispiece to forty-nine (coloured) plates, see BMSats 10816-63. The title, &c., is engraved on a framed tablet supported on a stone base in front of which are figures. An aged miser, moribund and toothless, seated in an armchair which is also a commode, is violently jolted by Death (left), a skeleton, who seizes the chair and tilts it backwards. The man has swathed gouty legs and holds a crutch; he wears a nightcap and dressing gown. Death has dropped his hour-glass. The old man looks with impotent anger at his young wife and her lover (right) who with defiant exultation pillage his 'Strong Box'. She has taken out money-bags, and holds up to him one inscribed 'Pin Money'; her foot rests on a 'Post Obit'. The young man is behind her, running forward, and holding up a bag of 'Pocket Pieces' whose contents he scatters. Beside him on the ground are a paper: 'Sale of Timber', and a book: 'Turf Callender - Cock Fighting'. Above the tablet are swags of leaves supported by a tragic and a comic mask. From the ends are suspended (left) a tambourine, (right) pan-pipes."--British Museum online catalogue.

Author: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827,

Four children stand beside her, two younger ones are by the fire, at which a woman is cooking. Another woman stands at a wash-tub. Sheets hang on a line. A dog puts his paws on the bed. Over the fireplace are plates and a gun; a bird is in a wicker cage. The man's coat and top-boots are on a chair beside him. Below: '"Sickness befriends temperance, by the simplicity of diet which it introduces: - it wards off the varied injuries of the open air, by requiring the party to inhale a thousand times over, the cherishing equable and safely treasured atmosphere of a chamber."--British Museum online catalogue.
