L'Industriel No 13. [French, c.1830.]
Lithograph, sheet 220 x 270mm. 8¾ x 10½". Fold creases;
French satirical print on Ottoman Turkish Trade. 1828 corresponds with the treaty of Adrianople where the Ruling Ottoman granted trade concessions to the Russians which may have annoyed the French hence this satire. It does show a European delegation appearing to be "cap in hand" at the Ottoman Court.
