"Locomotion: Walking by Steam, Riding by Steam, Flying by Steam," a satirical hand-colored etching, ca. 1830, by the caricaturist and illustrator of Dickens, spoofing the development and spread of steam power: a man is depicted walking with a steam-powered leg, and two women ride an enormous teapot, whose spout emits steam that lifts another man's winged flying machine; inscribed at top and bottom with titles, captions, and publisher's information. Image: 9.5" H X 13.75" W; frame: 15.25" X 19.25". Slight discoloration due to age; glass with a large crack across upper left quadrant.
