    Spoof advertisement from 'MRS. SEXTON, the Popular Lecturer to Ladies at Dr. Kahn's Museum', who announces her intention to open a 'summer class of anatomy at the sea-side', where the principal novelty will be the use of 'living figures' rather than 'wax models' to demonstrate 'truths'. Announces: 'The first lecture will take place in the open air on the sands at Ramsgate, and will be carried on during such time as the gentlemen remain in the sea, bathing'.
