Coloured cartoon from the Glasgow Looking Glass 9 July 1825 entitled "Occasional Essays On Taste" and depicting four men seated at a table reading various Glasgow newspapers. The artist's point is clear - while one man looks bored and two others are angered by what they are reading in the "serious" press, the man with the large paunch on the right is reading the Glasgow Looking Glass and laughing heartily.
