SUMMARY: A satire on the equestrian performances at Covent Garden, with John Philip Kemble, as a mount for Mrs. Sarah Siddons, as a tragedy queen, with raised dagger. Behind the centaur's kicking hind-legs lies Comedy on her back, a young woman holding up a smiling mask. Harlequin kneels at her feet, flourishing his wooden sword. Kemble says to a troupe of performing dogs and cats: "I will engage you all for the present season and - methinks I shall do well, to engage the Devil to play Lewis's Wood Daemon. Under Kemble's arm is a book: Emendations of Shakespeare by I.P.K.
