[Association meeting at York.]
London, Published as the Act directs, April 6th 1780 by Rob.t Laurie, N° 17, Rosomonds Row, Clerkenwell.
Mezzotint. 230 x 325mm (9 x 12¾"). Very rare. Trimmed to plate. Three vertical and one horizontal fold.
A representation, partly allegorical, of the meeting of the Yorkshire Association at York on 30th December 1779. The meeting marked the beginning of an extraordinary, widespread upsurge of discontent among the members of the ‘upper class’ in the county, provoked by the North ministry's inept handling of the American crisis. The Association produced the well-supported petition of 1780 for economical reform, and was then channeled and organized into an instrument of agitation for reform of the parliamentary system. The Yorkshire Association of the early 1780's marked the first effective extension of modern political radicalism in Great Britain from the metropolitan region into the provinces. In the foreground is the British Lion being unchained by a sailor and a soldier. The design is surrounded by a garland, the lower part of oak leaves, the upper part of olive. In the centre below the design is a trophy of the royal arms, flags, drums, cannon, an anchor and other munitions of war. In the centre above the design are the arms of the city of York supported by two cornucopias. Below this is a picture of Britannia and America embracing. On the left are the arms of Edwin Lascelles (Lascelles was a supporter of the Court, and through the efforts of Wyvill and Mason, the chief organizers of the Yorkshire Association, a large sum was raised in September 1780 to oppose his re-election.) On the right the arms of Sir George Savile, the other member for Yorkshire, who presented the Yorkshire petition to the House of Commons. Priced 'Price 2s' lower right.

Alfred Crowquill, delt. et lith. M & N. Hanhart, Impt.
Published by E. Sidebetham, 38, Burlington Arcade [n.d., c.1850].
Coloured lithograph, sheet 378 x 279mm. Light foxing to margins.
Illustrations to Jullien's Bal Masque quadrille, by Alfred Henry Forrester, best known under the name of Alfred Crowquill (1804 - 1872). Louis Antoine Jullien (1812 -1860) conducted a series of winter season promenade concerts at the Covent Garden Theatre, which were highly successful; and on March 4th, 1844, the first bal-masqué given in England in the 19th century took place at Covent Garden under his auspices. In 1822 Forrester wrote for the Hive and in 1823 for the Mirror. He next applied himself to the study of drawing and modelling, as well as to wood and steel engraving. He was also the writer of burlesques, drew pantomimic extravaganzas for the pictorial papers, and exhibited pen-and-ink sketches in the miniature room of the Royal Academy in 1845 and 1846. For a time he contributed sketches to ‘Punch,’ where his work will be found in vols. ii. iii. and iv., and then went over to the ‘Illustrated London News’ as a member of the literary and pictorial staff. As a writer and illustrator of his own writings he was very popular; upwards of twenty works came from his pen, many of them being children's books. For some years the London pantomimes were indebted to him for designs, devices, and effects. In 1851 he modelled a statuette of the Duke of Wellington, which he produced a fortnight before the duke's death and presented to Queen Victoria and the allied sovereigns. At the time when he originally started as an artist there was not much competition, and he consequently found constant work. His works have enjoyed a considerable amount of popularity.
