Description

The sun is represented as a human face with a running nose and suffering from frostbites.
The caption reads in the German edition: Es herrschte damals über ganz Europa ein so außerordentlich strenger Winter, daß die Sonne eine Art von Frostschaden erlitten haben muß, woran sie seit der ganzen Zeit her bis auf den heutigen Tag gesiecht hat.
