Description: These original prints are from a series of 60 cartoons consisting each of 16 small coloured prints, depicting a tale, telling a moral story. These so-called 'Catchpenny prints' or 'Images d'Epinal' were published in the period 1860-1890 as English translations from the original French work by Pellerin, Imagerie d'Epinal for the Humoristic Publishing Co., Kansas City.
