The receiver-general at work, or the dog at a bone (Dr Robert Knox)
A satirical image of the anatomist Robert Knox who is portrayed with the body of a dog. He is holding up the bones of a hand and forearm. He addresses the male students seated around him with the words "I will do just as I have done heretofore" and this is followed by the words Introductory Lecture, January. A cadaver lies of a table behind him covered by a sheet. The words "Drawn by Quintin Quizzical Esqr student" are also inscribed on the drawing.
