Description

Title page of Album du siège showing Paris at the top, represented as a man with a crown, eating rats and having a saucepan standing on each side of his head, one containing a dog, the other a cat. On the left side of the page, a crowd can be seen queuing up at a butcher’s shop while on the right side a horse is led to the knacker. At the bottom, bakers are busy making bread with hay.
