Two friends sitting on the sand, leaning against a large barrel, were interrupted by a ferocious tiger. Eventually, the barrel was on top of the tiger, the tiger's tail protruded through a hole, and a knotted tail outside kept the tiger in the barrel.... Then two years later, the tiger had apparently given birth to 4 little ones, all tail-tied in barrels "Wie der Natur spielt wunderlich". s(!) Carefully painted four- colour pictures; the backgrounds appear to be lithographed but there are small water drops in the margin, so they must simply be expertly done.
