THE COMEDY OF ERRORS.
INTRODUCTORY scenes, in explanation of Ægeon's story, are given in this series of designs to render them complete and intelligible. Some of the “ Errors” are unavoidably omitted as utterly impossible to be represented, but they are minor points, and the spirit of the comedy, it is hoped, will be found faithfully transferred by the subjects chosen.
With regard to the costume, the early destruction of Ephesus imperatively throws it back to the period of the antique, “ despite” the mention of America and rapiers.
