[Eliza Cook]
[From the Drawing by J Watkins. Print.d by W Cornish 63 Bartholomew Close.]
[n.d. c.1860.]
Rare lithograph. Sheet 260 x 220mm (10¼ x 8¾"). Trimmed to printed border, tipped on album paper.
Portrait of Eliza Cook (1818-89), poet and journalist, seated in a seaside cave, bonnet and dog at her feet. It was the cover illustration to sheet music for her 'Song of the Dog'. She began to write verses before she was fifteen; indeed, some of her most popular poems, such as ‘I'm afloat’ and the ‘Star of Glengarry,’ were composed in her girlhood. Her first volume, ‘Lays of a Wild Harp,’ appeared as early as 1835, when she was but seventeen. In May 1849 Eliza Cook brought out a publication upon somewhat similar lines to ‘Chambers's Journal,’ which she called ‘Eliza Cook's Journal.’ Great part of its contents reappeared in ‘Jottings from my Journal,’ 1860. They consisted of essays and sketches written in a simple, clear, and unpretending style, and generally conveyed some moral lesson. Some of them are mild satires on the social failings of her contemporaries, and exhibit good sense and some humour. Prominent chartist and a proponent of political freedom for women.

[Richard Cosway.] The Miniature Macaroni. V.4. 15.
Pub.d accor.g to Act, Sep.r 24. 1772 by Mdarly (39) Strand.
Etching. 170 x 130mm (6¾ x 5¼") with very wide margins.
Full length portrait of a man standing in profile to the right. In his left hand he holds up a handkerchief, in his right is a cane with a large tassel. The figure is about half the size of others of this series; this, and the length of his sword, suggests that he is very small. He is dressed macaroni-fashion, though his looped club is small. Evidently Richard Cosway (1742-1821), the miniature painter, who was very small; in 1785 he became 'Principal Painter to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales'. From 'Macaronies, Characters, Caricatures &c', an album of caricatures published by Mary Darly dated January 1776. It seems that her husband Matthew made the plates.
