Songs: "Deserted by the waning moon..."

One sheet of a series of satires, designed as a song book. Composed of vignette scenes, each scene illustrating in a humourous fashion a single line from a popular song of the day. The imagery derives from hunting, shooting and horses, scenes from domestic life, fashion, town and country life, military and naval life.
