Rare steel engraving with hand colour. 265 x 330mm (10½ x 13"). Trimmed close to plate, slight scuffing in inscription area.
RMS Amazon was a wooden barque with three masts and a paddle wheel, launched in 1851. On her maiden voyage the bearings on her two side-lever steam engines kept overheating, which possibly led to a fire in the hay bales kept for animal feed. The order to abandon ship was given, but heavy seas swamped most of the boats launched. The brig 'Marsden', seen in the background, rescued 21 people from a lifeboat, at one stage believed to be the only survivors but, over the course of the next few days, two other boats were recovered. It is estimated that over two-thirds of the passengers and crew died. At the time the Admiralty supervised UK merchant ships contracted to carry mail, demanding that they all have wooden hulls. After the Amazon disaster this order was rescinded, so iron hulls became the norm.

Mary Carleton (neé Moders, 1642-73), bigamist and fraudster who often pretended to be a German princess (having lived in Cologne) or an heiress. Having defrauded many men over more than ten years, she was convicted and hanged. This scene shows her with a different con: having attracted a rich lawyer as a lover, her 'husband' bursts in with an armed servant and extorts £100 from the lawyer. Probably from 'History of the Lives of the Most Notorious Highwaymen' by Captain Alexander Smith (pseud.), although examples of this print were issued as a broadside with letterpress.

[Louis Dominique Garthausen] Le Veritable Portrait de Cartouche tiré d'aprés Nature étant dans les Cachot.
[n.d., c.1725.]
Rare copper engraving, 255 x 330mm (10 x 13 ") Trimmed to plate on 2 sides. Small margins on left & right.
Louis Dominique Garthausen (1693-1721), better known as Cartouche, shown chained in his cell after an escape attempt. He was the leader of a band of over 2000 brigands (many ex-soldiers) operating in and around Paris during the regency of Philippe d'Orléans. A Robin Hood character, his exploits (including stealing 1.3 million livres of shares in John Law's Mississippi Company) and seductions made him a folk hero. The authorities resorted to torturing known associates for information, eventually getting a member of the band to betray him. Cartouche was arrested, tortured to no avail, then broken on the wheel.
