Philanthropic consolations after the loss of the slave-bill [graphic].

Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,
Description: "Wilberforce and Bishop Horsley revel indecorously with two negresses. Wilberforce and a fat negress face each other sitting cross-legged on the bolsters at opposite ends of a settee; both smoke cheroots. The negress wears a large straw hat over her turban, her breasts are uncovered. On the ground by Wilberforce is a torn pamphlet: 'Tryal of. . . & . . . [names illegible] convicted of Perjury in the case of Captn Kimber'. On the right the fat bishop embraces a negress who is poised on his knee, holding up a wine-glass. Behind him and on the extreme right is a table on which are books: 'Rochesters Jests', 'Charity covereth a Multitude of Sins' (open), 'Humanity a Masque', 'Mathematick', 'Ghost of Clarence', and a paper: 'Defence of Orthodoxy, better late than never'. Both women wear loose patterned dresses. A little grinning black boy (left) brings in a tray of filled glasses. The room is well furnished with a patterned carpet. On the wall are four pictures and a candle-sconce. Above the door appears the lower part of a picture of a man seated on the ground: 'Captn Kimber in the Cells of Newgate'. Above Wilberforce's head is a picture, 'Inkle & Yarico': Inkle discovers Yarico, a negress, reclining under a palm tree in a mountainous landscape. (For Colman's opera, 1787, cf. BMSat 7260.) Above Horsley's head is a picture of a stage-coach driving right to left; a fat bishop (almost recognizable) looks out of the window to inspect the legs of an outside passenger which dangle from the roof. On the extreme right is a picture of 'Westminster Abbey'."--British Museum online catalogue.

Early enameled crosiers of the Limoges and German schools.

Champlevé, Medieval Europe Pictorial works.
Author: Seidler, Charles.
Description: Album of photographs and drawings of 89 early enameled crosiers compiled by Charles Seidler with manuscript index; descriptive catalog in English, French, and German; and list of reference sources. Included are 64 mounted photographic prints, 1 photomechanical print, and 28 pen and ink illustrations by Seidler. One card photograph, a duplicate of a mounted photograph, is laid in. Laid into the volume is an autograph signed letter from the creator addressed to "Mr. Ellis" describing the provenance of the images in the album and locations of crosiers described in the album but not pictured. A laid in manuscript catalog, formerly enclosed with the letter, lists 98 crosiers, notes whether each crosier has been photographed, and categorizes them by group. This list was likely used by the creator in the compilation of the album.

Philosopher [graphic] : Conduit Street / X.

Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,

A small still, phials, &c, and an elaborate appliance (right) are on the long table behind which he stands. On the wall are two medallion profile-portraits, one (left) being that of Priestley. A serpent, a scroll with cabalistic signs, a terrestrial globe on a bracket, are also on the wall, which is lit by a single candle with a curiously shaped reflector."--British Museum online catalogue, description of an alternate version of similar composition.
