Physical Description

Uncolored aquatint of two large birds pulling a balloon. A man is riding in the gondola, and is holding a whip. Print appears to have been previously cut into 6 rectangular pieces, or it was folded and the paper split along the folds. The print is reassembled, and now adhered to a piece of board, so the reverse is inaccessible.
