ANTIQUE PRINT: NEWGATE : GREEN HASTEDS!

CRAIG, William Marshall : NEWGATE : GREEN HASTEDS!

London : Richard Phillips, 1804. An attractive and unusual antique print – a barrow boy sells 'hasteds’ (or more usually 'hastens') outside the grim walls of Newgate Gaol. Hastens were strictly speaking the earliest variety of green pea to come into season – and those forced in hothouses to be the first of the summer commanded a premium price – but the name was also used indiscriminately by the barrow-boys to cover the cheaper and more plentiful later varieties. 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) .
Aquatint, line and stipple engraving on paper. Original hand colour. Engraved surface (including quadruple-rule outer border) 132 x 102mm (approx. 5-1/4” x 4”). A few trifling marks, but overall in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique print. Adams 89/035.
