1864 Black American Cartoon Civil War John Bull Philadelphia Sanitary Commission For Sale

1864 Black American Cartoon Civil War John Bull Philadelphia Sanitary Commission

1864 Black Memorabilia Cartoon, Civil War Era, John Bull, Philadelphia Sanitary Commission Limerick


Description

Vintage book plate print from the Civil War era book of limericks titled, “The New Book of Nonsense: A Contribution to the Great Central Fair, In Aid of the Sanitary Commission, Philadelphia, June 1864, Published by Ashmead & Evans.” The Sanitary Commission Fairs were grassroots efforts to encourage the patriotism and volunteerism in Philadelphia during the Civil War. This vintage Plate 13 from the compendium of cartoons shows an inappropriately rendered African American leading a bull-like gentleman by the ring in his nose with the following limerick:

A fine noble fellow is “Bull”

Of courage and energy full;

But easily led

By a slight cotton thread,

So gentle and mild is our Bull.

No doubt in line with the period criticisms of John Bull and the British government permitting Confederate warships to be refitted by British shipbuilders which became known as the Alabama Claims controversy at the end of the Civil War.

Nice condition light aging, measures 5 3/4 x 9 inches signed in the print CWE or WEC.
