1831 John Doyle Hand Colored Lithograph Caricature- A Disagreeable Position

A Disagreeable Position

Hand Colored folio Lithograph

By John Doyle (HB)

HB Sketches No 519

Publ. T. McLean 1838

Folio (11.5” x 16.”) slightly soiled margins, with good color; prominant stain on bottom margin just touches image frame.

By writing his initials twice-over, John Doyle manipulated the letters to create the pseudonym signature "HB". Born in Catholic Dublin, HB arrived in London in 1821, after the death of James Gillray. Thomas Rowlandson had aged, as well, and with him the era of biting, pointed caricature in London. As HB began his career, he introduced a gentler sort of satire, making soft jokes calculated to avoid strong offence. Rather than exaggerating physical features and pushing the bawdy laugh, Doyle employed reasonable likenesses with circumstantial humor. Even the subtle, sketchy appearance of his lithography marked a change from the loose, brash lines of colored etchings, a medium that had dominated caricature printing for the previous half-century.

From the Data Base of the British Museum: Lord Glenelg stands in the stocks and receives a hail of rubbish. Coloured lithograph by H.B. (John Doyle), 1838. Lord Brougham is about to hurl a rotten egg and Lord Aberdeen is about to fling a dead cat. Lord Melbourne is also in the crowd, with Lord John Russell, Thomas Spring-Rice and the Duke of Wellington. Glenelg had to bear the brunt of Parliamentary censure on the occaision of the revolt in Canada.


The Details:

I try to give a complete description of every item I offer for sale, as well as providing sharp, accurate pictures. Please use the zoom feature to examine the items carefully. I answer all questions promptly, and I appreciate having any errors I may have made corrected. (Even though I have been buying and selling prints for nearly forty years, I continue to be amazed at how much I don’t know.)

I ship within one business day of receiving payment. I normally use flat packaging, Prints over 20” in length I will ship in a tube, unless the weight of the paper makes rolling inadvisable. If a buyer has particular shipping preferences he or she should contact me prior to making payment.

Domestic Shipping: I ship most domestic orders either by insured USPS Priority mail, or First Class insured. My shipping charges reflect this cost. I am willing to mail in more economical ways at the buyer’s request, but if the buyer asks to waive insurance, I cannot assume responsibility for any loss or damage. I combine shipping charges on multiple sales, so buyer should wait for my invoice at the end of the sale. If the buyer wishes to make special arrangements for shipping, he or she should contact me before paying.

Books: Media Mail is ’s default shipping method for books, and the only shipping charge permissible. Other shipping methods are available. I will provide an alternative with the invoice I send. The buyer can choose which to pay.

International Shipping: I normally ship by First Class Mail. This is the most economical way to safely ship internationally, but there is no insurance available. In case of loss, I am only able to provide proof that the item was, indeed, shipped. If the buyer would like his or her purchase insured, International Priority Mail is available, but at a higher price. I recommend this option when the item is large and/or valuable. Buyer should contact me before payment is made.

Payment: Please pay through PayPal. I would like to receive payment within five days of the sale closing. It often happens that a buyer will ask me to wait because he or she is interested in offerding on other lots. I am always willing to wait, but I do like to hear from the buyer if payment is to be delayed.

Customer Satisfaction is very important to me. If there are any issues with an item purchased from me, I want to hear about it right away, and I will make every attempt to resolve the issue. Any item may be returned to me for a full refund, only with the buyer paying return shipping. Be sure to write first.

Your response is the way I know that you have received your purchase and are satisfied. Please take the time to leave response for me. It helps me and it helps other buyers.
