An engraving after one of England's foremost 19th century illustrators. Here, Cruikshank pokes fun at the lack of sophistication of his fellow Englishmen. Two English tourists greet each others outside the archway of the Hotel des Fermes, a rotund man wearing a rather absurd traveling hat, and a young dandy. Their conversation in fractured French is printed in the caption below: "Commong porty vous Munseer?" and "O Oui--il est un tres belle jour!" They are observed with amusement by a French coachman and another man, as well by two young women looking out the window of a milliner's shop. The outer wall of the hotel is placarded with advertisements for theatrical entertainments poking fun at the English, e.g. one for a comic opera called "John Bull in Paris" (John Bull being the symbolic embodiment of the typical Englishman). The print was originally issued in 1822. This is a reissue from an 1835 series called Cruikshankiana. Condition: Generally very good noting overall all toning of paper, and the usual light wear, soiling, soft creases. Trimmed to the plate mark on the top and bottom. Remnants of card board on the verso top and bottom. N° de ref. de la librería 100004

Descripción de la librería

George Glazer opened his art and antiques gallery in 1993, and since the beginning the emphasis has been on the themes of exploration and discovery as embodied by globes, prints, maps and art. The gallery's unusual ambiance reflects its owner -- scholarly and intellectual, but with an eye for the decorative and a sense of humor that revels in the offbeat. Featured items include: Antique World Globes -- huge selection; floor and table, terrestrial and celestial, orrerys and armillary spheres. Maps - - 19th C. American maps and atlases; celestial charts. Prints and Paintings -- botanical, bird, sporting, maritime, fashion and costume, architectural and horses. Books -- leather and colorplate.
