Humorous caricatures of seminarians on vacation: a portly man with an umbrella tucked under his arm, another riding a horse perhaps on his way home from the market with chickens poking out from beneath his robe, and a third struggling to stay on a bucking donkey.

Condition: Generally very good with the usual light toning, wear, soiling, soft creases. Some minor scattered foxing.
