Le Boxeur Blessé et ses Parieurs Consternés.
Le Boxeur Blessé et ses Parieurs Consternés. Scènes Anglaises dessinées à Londres, par un français prisonnier de Guerre.
A Paris chez Demaison Rue St. Jacques N.o 43 [n.d., c.1820].
Rare coloured etching. 260 x 330mm (10¼ x 13") very large margins.
The aftermath of a casual street-contest, recorded by a French prisoner of war. A lean pugilist, stripped to the waist, sits on the knee of a supporter as a fat publican pours the contents of a tankard into his mouth, trying to revive him. The punters stand around grim-faced at the loss of their bets. First published in 1814 by Aaron Martinet (BM Satires 12352).
