This is a very fine quality antique chromolithograph from a series produced by the British museum around 1900. This particular leaf is a reproduction from "Harley Manuscript 4375". Also known by the title, "Les Fais et les Dis des Romains et de autres gens", it was written and illuminated in France, probably about 1475, by Valerius Maximus. The somewhat obscure scenes from classical literature depicted are: (a) Sergius Orata pointing to the hanging baths invented by him; (b) the same, inspecting his artificial preserves for sea-fish; (c) the profligate son of Aesop the tragedian feasting on priceless singing-birds; (d) the Roman women pleading against the lex Oppia, enacted to restrain feminine luxury. It is in perfect condition and measures 15 inches by 11 inches. The image itself measures 11.5" x 10.25"
