I suspect it is again from a painting or engraving yet discovered such as this:

When I painted my set I found Georg Emanuel Opitz's (d. 1841 in Leipzig) engravings, especially this was useful: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ADjAINlmJhw/U51ZesKXe2I/AAAAAAAADSk/e9vs4aE9SYs/s1600/%2524_57.JPG
Regarding the Antique book market, Opitz has a print named Der Antiquar auf der Leipziger Messe https://www.akg-images.de/archive/Der-Antiquar-auf-der-Leipziger-Messe-2UMDHUQWNN22.html
Mohr's figures are clearly based on the in 1825 printed Leipziger Messzenen, but drawn by Opitz somewhat earlier.

Jim Woodley had a great series on Mohr - BFFS Journal # 103 - where he stated the belief the Antique Book Market - (also available from Merten) is logically part of this set.

Gianfranco Speranza has a stunning version of this set which set me on it originally.
