ANTIQUE PRINT: PANTHEON : HOT SPICED GINGERBREAD.

CRAIG, William Marshall, 1764?-1829 : PANTHEON : HOT SPICED GINGERBREAD.

London : Richard Phillips, 1804. An attractive and uncommon antique print – the gingerbread-man outside the Pantheon on Oxford Street, originally built in 1772 as a "winter Ranelagh" – an indoor pleasure resort.

This was a winter delicacy – in the summer season he sold Banbury Cakes. 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 and line engraving on paper. Original hand colour. Engraved surface (including quadruple-rule outer border) 131 x 101mm (approx. 5-1/4” x 4”). A couple of tiny marks to borders, but overall in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique print. Adams 89/038.

[CRAIG, William Marshall, 1764?-1829] : PORTMAN SQUARE : BRICK DUST.

Originally produced for Phillips’ part-work “Modern London : Being the History and Present State of the British Metropolis” (1804), but here in a slightly later impression with the outer ruled border, imprint and credit burnished out.
