[Thomas Dudley after Francis Barlow, 1678/9]
Etching, platemark approx. 240 x 165mm (9½ x 6½").
One of thirty-two illustrations to the second (1687) edition of Francis Barlow's Aesop, showing scenes from the life of the Greek storyteller. All of the plates were designed by Barlow but only five were etched by him. The rest, including this one, were etched by Thomas Dudley (1678-9, fl.). Little is known of Dudley- he signed himself as a student of Wenceslaus Hollar in one print and while he etched some portraits, his prints after Barlow are his most important work. In 1679 he went to Lisbon, where he is known to have made further prints, and he is not supposed to have returned to England thereafter.

The son of a notable satirist (who died following a drinking match when George was only 19, leaving him as the family breadwinner), Cruikshank was a prolific and celebrated caricaturist from an early age. Alongside contemporaries such as Rowlandson and Gillray, he ridiculed the excesses of late Georgian Britain with devastating effectiveness (George IV eventually paid him 'not to caricature His Majesty in any immoral situation'). In the 1830s he left behind single-sheet satires such as this to begin a second career as a book illustrator, working with Charles Dickens and other leading writers.

A Black Ball. La Pastorelle.
A Black Ball. La Pastorelle. Life in Philadelphia No. 10
W. Summers Del. C. Hunt Sc.
T.C. Lewis & Co. 96 Cheapside London [c1850]
Etching and aquatint with hand-colouring, sheet 220 x 275mm (8½ x 10¾"). Trimmed. Very slight staining in middle.
The 'Life in Philadelphia' caricatures lampooning the social aspirations of Philadelphia's black population were first published by Edward William Clay in the United States in the 1820s. Shortly after the London publisher W. Harrison Isaacs published a set of copies drawn by William Summers and engraved by Charles Hunt, augmenting them with new caricatures in the same vein but set in London. Isaacs' plates subsequently passed to Gabriel Shire Tregear, and then to his former shopman Thomas Crump Lewis (1808-81), whose publication line is on this impression. Hickman notes that Lewis's reissue of Tregear's set of 20 'Life in Philadelphia' prints is dated to 1860 by the Library Company of Philadelphia, but suggests 'it was probably earlier'.

Etching and aquatint with hand-colouring, sheet 230 x 310mm (9 x 12¼"). Trimmed.
Five adults and one child around a newly dug grave. One of a series of 'Tregear's Black Jokes', a set of twenty caricatures first published in 1834, the year in which the Slavery Abolition Act came into force. The prints, which were advertised as 'A Series of Laughable Caricatures on the March of Manners amongst Blacks', developed the theme of the earlier 'Life in Philadelphia' caricatures lampooning the social aspirations of Philadelphia's black population. These were first published by Edward William Clay in the United States in the 1820s. The London publisher Gabriel Shire Tregear published copies of the 'Life in Philadelphia' caricatures, then followed it up with 'Tregear's Black Jokes'. After Tregear's death his plates passed to his former shopman Thomas Crump Lewis (1808-81), whose publication line is on this print. The three mentions of Tregear's name on the plate have either been changed to Lewis', or simply effaced.
