ANTIQUE PRINT: ST. GILES’S CHURCH : SAND O!

[CRAIG, William Marshall] : ST. GILES’S CHURCH : SAND O!

[London : Richard Phillips, 1804]. An attractive and unusual antique print – the sand-man and his barrow outside the church of St. Giles in the Fields. The sand was sold for cleaning kitchen utensils and strewing on the floor to protect the floorboards – "a carpet of small expense and easy to be renewed". White sand cost five farthings a peck, but red sand was twice as much. Engraved from an original study by William Marshall Craig (fl.1788-1828), water-colour painter to Queen Charlotte. Originally produced for Phillips’ part-work “Modern London : Being the History and Present State of the British Metropolis” (London : 1804), but here in a slightly later impression with the outer ruled border, imprint and credit burnished out.
Etching, line and stipple engraving on paper. Original hand colour. Engraved surface (including double-rule outer border) 116 x 80mm (approx. 4-5/8” x 3-1/8”). Outer blank margins rather spotted, but the image in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique print. Adams 89/049 – not listing this variant.
