"Industry and Idleness"
'The fellow 'prentices at their looms', plate I of "Industry and Idleness"; two apprentices are at their looms. The idle apprentice gazes blankly before him. On his loom is a tankard and above him is a sheet headed 'Moll Flanders'; The industrious apprentice works busily, a copy of 'The Prentice Guide' on the floor beside him; in the doorway their master brandishes a stick.
