About This Item

London: G.S. Tregear, 96 Cheapside / Ingray, Lith, 1836. Hardcover. Near Fine. Hand colored lithograph on white wove paper. Approximately 12.5" x 9.5". Margins a bit trimmed affecting no text or any part of the image (as evidenced from the only other copy we could locate), slight scuffs on the verso, probably from having been tipped into an album, small and light smudge in the right middle margin, tiny stain on the hem of one dress, else near fine. The lithograph displays caricatures of six presumably female slaves dressed in sack-type shifts, all shackled together by the wrists, and standing in a line looking silly or befuddled. G.S. Tregear, who died in 1841, published various images in the *Flowers of Ugliness* series, each issued separately as single sheets, consisting mostly of political satire in England; this is one of the few racially themed prints issued by him. *OCLC* seems to locate no copies, but the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division displays a copy online (with larger margins but in worse condition). The LOC copy has very similar, although not exact coloring, likely by the same hand.
