Modern Athenians plate 1 - Edinburgh

Alexander Youngson on the left hand plate, approaching John Sheriff, alias 'Dr. Syntax', on the right hand plate. Youngson was apparently not happy about being depicted with Dr. Syntax, whose name was "doubtless bestowed from the remarkable likeness he showed to the figure so called in Rowlandson's coloured prints, published about the year 1815. Dressed with the most scrupulous care and cleanliness, in an antiquated costume of semi-military character with highly polished Hessian boots, he was to be seen every Sunday staling at a rapid pace through the streets with his cane poised on his shoulder. He rendered himself still more grotesque by wearing a pair of green spectacles and a remarkably low-crowned hat - probably a cast-off one of Dr. John Ritchie's, the well-known voluntary church controversialist."
