Doctor Spindle & Miss Maria Mince-Meat.
Doctor Spindle & Miss Maria Mince-Meat. Worn out with folly and disease, / The doctor thinks his purse can please, / But chaste Maria, with disdain, / Laughs at his hopes, and fancied pain, / And says, a warming-pan, instead, / Would better suit his feeble bed
[after George, 1st Marquess Townshend.]
[...]1777 by J. Walker No.13 Parliament Street.
Etching with hand colour. Sheet 340 x 230mm (13½ x 9"). Framed. Trimmed within plate, small nick in left edge. Unexamined out of frame.
According to ''The Reminiscences of Henry Angelo'' (1830), this anonymous caricature is by George Townshend and ''was intended, it is said, as a satirical corrective to a certain well-known decrepit Irish physician, whose amours rendered him fairly obnoxious to ridicule''. Field Marshal George Townshend (1724-1807), 1st Marquess Townshend, fought at Dettingen, Culloden and Lauffeld, and received Quebec City's surrender in 1759 after the death of Wolfe. However he was a keen amateur caricaturist, which got him in to trouble on more than one occasion: he offended the Duke of Cumberland during the Jacobite campaign, resulting in Townshend missing out on promotions for many years; and his contempt for Wolfe evident in another caricature led to censure for ridiculing the dead hero. However the BM biography ends: 'Established caricature as an important element in British political satire'.

[Eleven erotic mezzotints.]
[Eleven erotic mezzotints.]
[W. Ward and J.R. Smith(?) after G. Morland.]
[British, n.d., c.1790.]
Scarce set of eleven privately-issued pornographic mezzotints, illustrating scenes from popular novels. Each plate c. 335 x 260mm (13¼ x 10¼"). Images generally good, some foxing. They are sandwich mounted; all appear to have margins.
These are (ostensibly) illustrations of Fielding's Tom Jones, Cleland's Fanny Hill, and Rousseau's La Nouvelle Heloise and Les Confessions. Radically different from George Morland's (1763-1804) more familiar rustic genre, landscapes and elegant portraits of decorous young ladies, these plates graphically depict sexual intercourse and activity in a variety of situations. They are almost certainly engraved by William Ward (1766-1826) and John Raphael Smith (1752-1812), with whom Morland enjoyed a fruitful business partnership. All plates captioned, with the appropriate literary reference; all are (naturally) unsigned. Some of the faces, and other more intimate parts of the human anatomy, have been reworked (one impression in particular is rather faint). In June 2012 Christie's sold an album of 13 similar erotic plates titled 'Facetiae'. The BM lists ten on its website.

Elizabeth (née Farren, 1759-1829), actress. She performed most frequently at the Drury Lane and Haymarket theatres following her London debut in 1777. In 1797 she married Edward Smith-Stanley, 12th Earl of Derby, by whom she had a son and two daughters. This portrait was first published in 1788 by Lawson, for a series of portraits after Downman, all women who had acted in the Richmond House Theatre, the 3rd Duke of Richmond's private theatre in Richmond House, Whitehall. Regarded as one of the grandest houses of the period, it burned down in 1791, after which the Duke concentrated on his country estate, Goodwood. Downman's original chalk is in the National Portrait Gallery.

[Georgiana Fleming Leicester, Lady de Tabley.]
[Georgiana Fleming Leicester, Lady de Tabley.]
[after William Owen.]
[n.d. c.1820.]
Mezzotint, proof before all letters. 665 x 410mm (26¼ x 16"). Thread margins, extreme upper right corner of margin missing. Paper evenly age-toned, occasional foxing.
Georgiana Maria, youngest daughter of Lieutenant-colonel Cottin [1794-1859], wife of John Fleming Leicester, 1st Baron de Tabley, of Tabley house in Cheshire. Her beauty was captured by Sir Thomas Lawrence in the famous portrait of her in the character of Hope. This is a rare engraving after the painting by William Owen R.A. (1769-1825) that hangs at Tabley. The engraver is uncertain: it is possibly the suppressed plate by Charles Turner (1773-1857). William Owen worked as an apprentice to Charles Catton, R.A., for seven years, starting in 1786. He entered the Royal Academy as a student in 1791, receiving encouragement from, among others, Sir Joshua Reynolds. He was elected R.A. in 1806, became portrait painter to the Prince of Wales in 1810, and was appointed principal painter to the Prince Regent in 1813.
Provenance: Sold by Christies July 1929. CS: Unrecorded. Not in NPG.

John Fleming, Lord de Tabley.
[after Sir Joshua Reynolds, James Northcote and John Simpson.]
London, Published July 1, 1829, by M. Colnaghi, 23, Cockspur Street, Charing Cross.
Very rare mezzotint. 705 x 480mm (27¾ x 19"). Several tears in the margins, one entering the inscription area, with spotting.
Full-length portrait of Sir John Fleming Leicester (1762-1827), 1st Lord de Tabley, in peer's robes. It was incomplete when Joshua Reynolds died in 1792, so it was finished by his pupil, James Northcote. According to the Tabley House Collection (owned by the University of Manchester) the painting was reworked in 1826 (a year before Leicester's death) by John Simpson. This mezzotint was engraved after Leicester had died. The engraver is unknown; the BM describes an untitled plate (1852,1116.547) with the same description, published by John Jeffryes (d.1804.),
