Offprint from the Burlington Magazine January 1963; printed cardboard wrapper stapled as issued; b/w plates include X-ray & Infra-red pictures; the article investigates the history of the 2 versions of the cartoon including damage by the Great Fire of London; Holbein prepared this cartoon for a large-scale work to commemorate the grant of a royal charter to the Company of Barbers and the Guild of Surgeons on their merger in 1540. Presumably at the request of his clients, Holbein based the design on that of the miniatures painted on Tudor charters of privileges. Working from an old sketch, Holbein portrayed King Henry, who did not sit for him on this occasion, more as an icon than as a living person; signature of previous owner on front cover is that of the late Humphrey Arthure - well-known gynaecologist; 14 pages.
