Single-sided printed ticket, approximately 115mm x 70mm in size, for a concert held to benefit the Walsall anarchists on their release, n.d. but probably 1899. Remnants of paper where it was once glued into an album to the reverse, otherwise quite bright and clean. The Walsall Bomb Plot was engineered by a police spy called Coulon, (who had earlier worked at the International School set up in London by Louise Michel), entrapping several others; Charles, Cailes, Battola, Deakin, Westley and Ditchfield. Charles, Cailes and Battola were found guilty and given ten years, Deakin given five years, with Westley and Ditchfield found not guilty. Deakin was released in 1897 and the others in 1899. It is probably a ticket for the "rather sedate tea and social evening" mentioned by Quail, where Charles, Cailes and Battola were presented with about £20 (Quail, Slow Burning Fuse, page 218). A remarkable survival, from the collection of Ambrose Barker Size: 48mo. N° de ref. de la librería
