ANTIQUE PRINT: FOUNDLING HOSPITAL : SWEEP SOOT O.

[CRAIG, William Marshall, 1764?-1829] : FOUNDLING HOSPITAL : SWEEP SOOT O.

London : Richard Phillips, 1804. An interesting and uncommon antique print – a diminutive chimney-sweep, brush in hand, bag of soot on back, outside the Foundling Hospital in Guilford Street. The greater part of the profit arose from the sale of the soot for manure. The brass plate on the boy’s cap had boldly engraved upon it the name and address of his master – an early measure intended to promote the more humane treatment of these orphan boys from the workhouse. Engraved from an original study by William Marshall Craig, water-colour painter to Queen Charlotte. Originally produced for Phillips’ part-work “Modern London : Being the History and Present State of the British Metropolis” (1804).
Etching, line and stipple engraving on paper. Original hand colour. Engraved surface (including quadruple-rule outer border) 132 x 104mm (approx. 5-1/4” x 4-1/8”). A few faint marks to blank margins, but otherwise in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique print. Adams 89/030.
