Jack in the Green or the 1.st of May
Jack in the Green or the 1.st of May Scenes of London No. 5.
On Stone by G. Rymer.
[London: Ackermann, 1834]
Lithograph with hand-colouring, sheet 190 x 230mm (7½ x 9"). Excellent colour; trimmed, losing publication line, and pasted to album sheet with text fragments and another print verso.
May day celebration in London with a 'Jack in the Green', the figure wearing a foliage-covered framework. Harlequins etc. dance around a crowd. The tradition of the Jack in the Green waned as part of the Victorian disapproval of such customs, so the 1834 date of this print is perhaps significant. Originally published as one of six 'Scenes of London', all of which showed street entertainments such as a Punch & Judy show and jugglers. The scene shown here can be identified as Burton Street in Bloomsbury, laid out between 1809 and 1820 by the Scottish developer James Burton.

Lincolns Inn is one of four ancient inns of court and can call to the bar members qualified for the rank of Barrister. Inns of Court are ancient unincorporated bodies of lawyers which for five centuries and more have had the power to call to the Bar those of their members who have duly qualified for the rank or degree of Barrister-at-Law. With the power of call goes a power to disbar or otherwise punish for misconduct, a power which has had to be exercised only infrequently.
