Grand Celebration ob de Bobalition ob African Slabery. Life in Philadelphia No. 11
Drawn & Eng.d by J. Harris
T.C. Lewis & Co. 96 Cheapside London [c1850]
Etching and aquatint with hand-colouring, platemark 225 x 275mm (8¾ x 10¾") large margins. Borders dusty.
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 mostly 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'. This is the only print in Tregear's/Lewis's set which was not engraved by Charles Hunt. It clearly relates to the passing of the Slavery Abolition Act in 1833.

Hand-coloured lithograph, printed area 250 x 290mm (11¾ x 9½"). Large tear on left going just into image; rare.
Satire, presumably on the 1822 Congress of Verona, in which representatives of the Quintuple Alliance (Russia, Austria, Prussia, France and the United Kingdom) debated, amongst other matters, the 'Spanish Question'. This concerned the proposed French intervention in Spain to restore Ferdinand VII to his throne and bring an end to the 'Trienio Liberal' of 1820-3, three years of liberal democracy following a popular uprising against the king. Those assembled are in favour of restoring the king with the exception of Wellington, on the right, who denounces this 'Unholy Alliance' and insists 'I will have no hand in it'.

According to the Royal Museums Greenwich, which holds a copy of the print, it was made by Joseph (Giovanni) Schranz (1803-53), Maltese topographical artist. Schranz's father Anton (1767-1839) was a German artist who migrated to Minorca (where he married) and subsequently to Malta. Joseph and his brother Antonio (1801- after 1865) operated a lithographic establishment as the Schranz Brothers.

A very Jewish-looking old-clothes' man stands gazing up at the inscription ‘Commons’ (referring to the House of Commons) above an old iron-studded oak door; he raises the knocker, a ring in the mouth of an angry lion's head. He is bearded, and has three hats piled on his own, the topmost being very feminine. He wears a ragged and patched gabardine, old-fashioned buckled shoes, and carries across his shoulder a large bag, from a hole in which projects a pig's foot (a pig in his poke). On his back is an open box of trinkets, containing watches. Close behind him stands a turbaned Turk, watching him with eager anxiety. The Jew: 'Come I sha—Open the door vill ye—I vants to come in—and heres a shentlemans a friend of mines—vants to come in too—dont be afeard—I dont vant a sheat for nothing—I can pay for it So help me Got.' Three men, already admitted, look down at the applicants from a small open window beside the door to right: a dissenter, holding his hat, and characterized by lank hair and plebeian feature; a Jesuit wearing a biretta, and putting a thumb to his nose, and a fat elderly monk (frowning). The left door-post is inscribed: 'OAK Suppose to be sound Put up 1688 only latly discovered to be full of Skakes[?peare]. ' Catholic Emancipation, following the repeal of the Test and Corporation Acts in May 1828, raised hopes of Jewish emancipation. By William Heath (1794/5 - 1840), ex-Captain of Dragoons, illustrator of colour-plate books, and prolific caricaturist. From 1827-9 he used the pseudonym Paul Pry (from the name of a character in a comedy of 1825 by John Poole, that became a tag used for any very inquisitive person) with the emblem of a small man holding a walking stick in a lower corner of his plates. This figure was soon copied by other caricaturists (eg Sharpshooter), and so from 1828 Heath began to sign his plates with his full name. He published regularly with Thomas McLean.

Lucas Cranach Pinxt Fr. Muller Sculp.t
Inst. Bibl. Excud.t
Line engraving, platemark approx. 520 x 400mm (20½ x 15¾") very large margins. Uncut.
Martin Luther (1483-1546), theologian whose writings inspired the Protestant Reformation. In 1517 he famously published his '95 theses' attacking papal abuses and the sale of indulgences. Excommunicated by the Catholic church and declared a heretic, Luther's ideas were the foundation of a new conception of Christianity. He also translated the Bible into German to make it accessible to a larger number of people, contributing to the growth of the German language in the process. Engraving supposedly after Cranach, although far more in the idiom of the nineteenth century than Cranach's portraits of Luther.
