Coloured aquatint. 390 x 265mm (15¼ x 26¼"). Tear entering plate, one tear in margin.

The "Rum" sign above the door in the background suggests where the funds would be spent.

Prints satirising the free black population in Pennsylvania, which had banned slavery as early as 1780. Edward William Clay, inspired by Edward Cruikshank's 'Life in London' series, published his 'Life in Philadelpia' series from 1828-1830, in which this print was probably first published. Of the fourteen aquatints ten are satires of the black populace which did much to enforce the negative stereotypes held even in the free North.

Ch.s Hunt Sculp.t.

Hand-coloured aquatint. 490 x 595mm (19¼ x 23½"), in contemporary veneered frame. Accompanied by contemporary explanatory text. Trimmed to plate, unexamined out of frame, frame knocked.
The first prosecution under the 1822 Martin's Act, entitled "Ill Treatment of Cattle Bill", designed to prevent cruelty to animals. As such it was the first known prosecution for animal cruelty in the world. The prosecution of Bill Burn, at the Old Bailey, was brought by Colonel Richard Martin, [1754-1834], MP for Galway, and animal rights activist, the charge being one of cruelty after Burns was found beating his donkey. When it appeared that the Magistrates of the Court were not going to convict, Martin brought the poor animal into the Courtroom so that everyone could see its wounds, leaving the magistrates no choice but to find Burn guilty and fine him. On the floor is a dog-eared copy of Martin's act; under the large clock is a notice 'First Offence! Public Notice. Whereas P. Mathews having been convicted [of] stealing material from a comic song and murdering the subject, craves the pardon of the critics of Hagley Bazaar, Aug. 1838'. The comic song is reproduced on the text sheet.
