Curator Comment:
On Pélissier see ODNB. The book title matches that of the popular parodies and travesties performed on the London stage in the 1890s and early 1900s by the author's company that were known as 'Pélissier's Potted Plays'.
Note on artwork:
An overweight child plays, oblivious to the discussion of his merits and appearance by four older relatives. This humorous image which lightly caricatures those shown is simply presented in outline with some shading.
