Lithograph. Printed area 370 x 250mm (14½ x 9¾"). Wear to margins.
Sir George Back (1796-1878), British naval officer and explorer of Arctic America. He twice accompanied John Franklin to Canada's Northwest Territories (1819-22 and 1825-7) and later conducted two expeditions of his own to the same region. The first of these expeditions, in 1833, was to search for another British explorer, John Ross, who had disappeared on an Arctic voyage in 1829. In 1836, promoted to Captain and given command of HMS Terror, he returned to explore the coastal region east from the mouth of the river. Having been caught in the ice and striking an iceberg he nursed the sinking 'Terror' across the Atlantic, having to beach the ship on the coast of Ireland. Ill-health forced him to retire from active service, but he advised the Admiralty during the search for Franklin, and was promoted to vice-admiral in 1863 and admiral in 1876.

Rare lithograph. Sheet 360 x 260mm (14¼ x 10¼"). Some creasing.
Half length portrait in profile of William Dove, a tenant farmer, while on trial for poisoning his wife. Dove (1828-56) was deeply disturbed: as a child he had tortured cats, chased his sisters with a red-hot poker and was kicked out of school for bringing a gun. Falling under the influence of Henry Harrison, a charlatan fortune-teller, he was told he would marry a woman with 'auburn hair, light complexion and a good fortune'. Believing this was a neighbour, he decided to kill his existing wife with strychnine so that he could follow his destiny. Ending up on trial, he wrote a letter to the devil in his own blood, asking for help. Although being clearly insane, he was found guilty and sent to the gallows: his execution was watched by an estimated crowd of 10,000.
