Bow Street Myrmidons spoiling Bob Booty's Morning Draught.
Bow Street Myrmidons spoiling Bob Booty's Morning Draught. From the Original Picture by John Collet, in the possession of Carington Bowles.
London: Published as the Act directs. by Carington Bowles, N°. 69 St. Pauls Church Yard [n.d., c.1790].
Mezzotint, 255 x 350mm.
Three Bow Street officers burst open the door of a room where a man and two whores are sitting up in bed, much alarmed at their entry. The highwayman or burglar in the centre, wearing a night-cap, spills the contents of a punch-bowl held in his left hand; over his arm is a netted purse containing coins. One of the women takes up one of a pair of pistols lying by the bed. On the wall is a framed print of Jack Sheppard, shackled and sitting on the ground in prison. The brothers Henry and John Fielding, both of whom served as magistrates at Bow Street Court, created a salaried constabulary in 1750. The organization, known as the Bow Street Runners, patrolled the highways and streets within the parish of Bow Street. An act of Parliament later created several more offices based on the Bow Street model. A reissue of the plate first published by Carington Bowles in May 1781 under the title 'Fielding's myrmidons spoiling Bob Booty's morning draught'. Sir John Fielding had died in 1780 and Bowles obviously wished to update his engraving.
