Toby.
J. Parry del.t. A: Van Assen Sculp.t.
London, Pub.d Nov.1 1804, by J. Parry, No.5, Bentinck Street.
Coloured etching. 145 x 115mm (5¾ x 4½"). Stained.
A fell-length caricature portrait of a black man walking along, supporting himself on two sticks, a bandana covering his eyes. According to 'Portraits of Curious Characters in London', 1814, he worked on a merchant ship sailing from Bermuda to Memel (Lithuania) during which time he lost his toes to frostbite. He then travelled aboard the Lord Nelson Privateer to London, where he ended up on the streets begging. However he exaggerated his infirmities and spoke Bermudan patois to confuse potential benefactors.
