The Itinerant Apothecary.
[G.Spratt del. Printed by G.E.Madeley, 3 Wellington Stt. Strand.]
[Published by C.Tilt, Fleet Street.] [n.d., c.1830.]
Scarce coloured lithograph. Sheet 255 x 180mm (10 x 7"). Precisely trimmed around the character and glued to album sheet.
George Spratt was a man-midwife known for these ‘personification' prints - a figure is made up of the tools of their trade or the objects they are normally associated with. Here, an apothecary has a thigh and a hat made from a pestle and mortar, a measuring cylinder as a lower leg, bottles of treatments for arms and boxes of pills for feet. A pill cutter also forms part of his coat. An apothecary was a medical professional who formulates and dispenses materia medica to physicians, surgeons and patients — a role now served by a pharmacist (or dispensing chemist). Spratt collaborated on a number of these drawings with the lithographer G E Madeley.
