CRAIG, William Marshall, 1764?-1829 : TABARTS JUVENILE LIBRARY : BAND BOXES.
London : Richard Phillips, 1804. A most attractive and unusual antique print – an itinerant seller of gaily-coloured band-boxes, manufactured by himself and his family, the cheaper ones made from paste-board, the more expensive from deal and furnished with locks and keys. Behind him is the well-known children’s bookshop of Benjamin Tabart at 157 New Bond Street (on the corner of Grafton Street). Engraved from an original study by William Marshall Craig painter to Queen Charlotte. Originally produced for Phillips’ part-work “Modern London : Being the History and Present State of the British Metropolis” (1804).

GILLRAY, James, 1756-1815 : SANDWICH-CARROTS! – DAINTY SANDWICH-CARROTS.
London : H. Humphrey, 1796 [but later]. At the corner of Bond Street and Little Maddox Street, John Montagu, Fifth Earl of Sandwich (1744-1814) presses a favour on a knowing looking itinerant carrot-seller, whose attire perhaps belies her occupation. The scene is set in front of the shop at 42 New Bond Street of the bookseller, Robert Faulder (1747-1815). The books and pamphlets in the window provide a not so oblique commentary on the Earl’s lifestyle – "Rules of the Order of St. Francis" (i.e. the Hellfire Club), "Life of Servant Maids", "Doe Hunting : An Ode by an Old Buck Hound", "The Beauties of Bond Street", etc. Originally published in 1796, but here in the later state published in "The Works of James Gillray, from the Original Plates" (London : Henry G. Bohn, 1849-1851).
