Punch,  48 (1865), 196–97.

Private View of the Royal Academy

Epicurus Rotundus


Essay, Drollery


Representation, Mathematics, Force, Physics

    Grumbling about the difficulty of writing criticisms on works of art, the author wishes that Mr Punch, who had given him his card for a 'Private View at the Royal Academy', would have given him 'only such subjects as Logarithms, or the Conservation of Forces, or the Differential Calculus' even though some people are 'so awfully sharp-sighted that they would discern allusions even in a treatise on these'.
