Pub.d July 30th 1798 by S.W. Fores 50 Piccadilly [...] Folios of Caracature lent out for the Evening
Etching with hand-colouring, fine impression, platemark 335 x 385mm (13¼ x 15¼"). Small margins; collector's stamp of Minto Wilson verso.
'The scene is evidently the presentation of colours by the Duchess of York to the St. James's Volunteers in Calvert's ground, Bedford Square, on 5 July' (British Museum cataloguing). The colonel of the St. James's Volunteers was Baron Amherst, but the profile here resembles William Pitt (an earlier owner has inscribed on the mount 'Pitt as Colonel of the Cinque Port Volunteers?'). Etching by Charles Williams (1797 - 1830, fl.), prolific etcher of satires from his own designs and those of other artists (especially Woodward). Almost all his plates are anonymous and little work has been done to establish for certain which prints he made. As a result Williams is little-known in comparison with contemporaries such as Rowlandson and Gillray in spite of the comparable quality of some of his work. This impression from the collection of Minto Wilson (1938-51, fl.), collector particularly of caricatures and sporting prints. For other prints from the same collection see refs. 7799 and 7825.

Photograph mounted on printed sheet, sheet 270 x 205mm (10½ x 8").
Samuel Plimsoll (1824-98), politician and shipping reformer. An M.P. for Derby, Plimsoll's six-year campaign against overloaded 'coffin-ships' (over-insured and then deliberately overloaded in the hope of collecting insurance money) resulted in the 1876 Merchant Shipping Act. This introduced the 'Plimsoll Line', a load line reflecting a vessel's buoyancy. Plimsoll's name was also bestowed on the rubber-soled canvas shoes manufactured by the Liverpool Rubber Company in 1876: the company's salesman, Philip Lace, said that the shoes were water-tight as long as they were not immersed above the level of the band, and that this reminded him of the Plimsoll line.

Prerogatives Defeat or Liberties Triumph
Prerogatives Defeat or Liberties Triumph
Publisd [sic] Aprill 20. 1780 by E. Darchery St Js' Street [partly trimmed]
Etching with hand-colouring, sheet 250 x 310mm (9¾ x 12¼"). Trimmed inside platemark; collector's stamp of Minto Wilson verso.
The Earl of Bute and Lord North lie on the ground, trampled by John Dunning. This is a representation of Dunning's famous resolution stating that the influence of the Crown ought to be diminished (moved 6 Apr. 1780). It also illustrates the first defeat of the Government in the House of Commons that year, when the clause for abolishing the Board of Trade was carried. It anticipates (by almost two years) a change of ministry and subsequent peace with America. The Scot with a sword who attacks Dunning is probably William Fullarton. The scene is watched by America and Ireland, standing together. Unsigned print published by Elizabeth Darchery (1780-84, fl.), publisher of satirical prints based on St James's Street, London. This impression from the collection of Minto Wilson (1938-51, fl.), collector particularly of caricatures and sporting prints. For other prints from the same collection see refs. 7799, 7825, 47198, 47199
