Suicide Of A Candidate By Jumping down his own Throat.
Satirical song sheet, five verses in two columns, letterpress broadside with woodcut title. Thin rag paper, sheet 250 x 190mm, 9¾ x 7½".
An extremely scarce locally-printed broadside celebrating the defeat at the polls of a parliamentary candidate for Leicestershire. The fourth verse refers to fox hunting, a sport traditionally synonymous with the county. The author is evidently a hunt supporter who accuses the candidate of destroying his sport.
