T. Clarkson et Wilberforce.
[Indistinctly signed in plate.]
1835.
Stipple, sheet 255 x 170mm. 10 x 6¾". Light foxing, vertical crease to right edge of sheet.
William Wilberforce (1759 - 1833) was an evangelical Christian and social reformer who dedicated himself to the 'suppression of the Slave Trade and the reformation of manners'. He entered Parliament in 1780 as a Tory MP and was the Parliamentary leader of the Abolition movement from 1787. After years of campaigning, Wilberforce's bill to end Britain's part in slave trading was passed to a standing ovation in 1807. Thomas Clarkson (1760 - 1846) was one of the early British abolitionists, and interested Wilberforce in the issue. A further act of 1833 provided for the emancipation of slaves in British colonies.
