Characteristics of Each European Nation, as laid down by Wyndham Beawes,in his History of Spain and Portugal.
Curious and rare letterpress broadside table of national "characteristics" of the Germans, Spanish, Italians, French, and English. Sheet 120 x 160mm, 4¾ x 6¼". Rare. Minor surface soiling and staining (as normal).
As the text below the table makes clear, a highly satirical reaction to Wyndham Beawes' 'A Civil, Commercial, Political, and Literary History of Spain and Portugal', (London: R. Faulder, 1793). The author clearly considers that Beawes' observations are simply crass racial sterrotypes.
