This illustration dates to the 1800s and accompanied "Japhet, In Search of a Father" (1836) and shows a clown performing with his partner in a town square. The novel was written by Captain Frederick Marryat, a Royal Navy officer during the Napoleonic Wars. He later went on to write novels, based in part on his experiences at sea.
