Print: Baxter - CL 153 - When on a Red Seal Mount, as this example, the title is "The Tarantella Dance,". It is enlargement of the 1847 print the small Tarantella and is now signed "Printed in Oil Colours, and Published by G. Baxter, Patentee, 11, Northampton Square,"


The image is described as “"This dance derives its appellation from a species of spider called the Tarantula, which is found in the district round Taranto in the Neapolitan territory, and takes its name from the Capital of the district.  The bite of this spider is supposed to produce a peculiar nervous malady somewhat resembling the St. Vitus dance.”
