Belgium,Walloon Jacquerie of 1886
1880s Antique Print
Large Double Folio Size
You are offerding on an extra-large original antique print from an 1880s newspaper. It shows several views of the Walloon jacquerie of 1886 (popular uprising with riot and strikes) in Belgium. Wallonia (Wallonie, Wallonië, Waloneye) is the predominantly French-speaking southern region of Belgium.
The Walloon jacquerie of 1886 was a working class jacquerie of a bloody spring as many Walloon scholars are calling it. This violent upheaval of the Belgian, especially Walloon proletariat, caused a profound psychological shock in an atmosphere of fear of an inevitable and explosive social polarisation. César de Paepe wrote the strike spread through whole Wallonia from the Prussian border as far as Tournai Other historians thought Wallonia sprang from the strike.
The page measures approximately 23.5 x16 inches (59 x40 cm). It has one vertical fold through the middle, where it was bound into the original journal over 100 years ago. The fold lines are clean without any darkening. The print has three tiny holes along the fold where it was originally bound into the journal. There is unrelated text on the back of these pages, but it does not show through the rich paper.
PLEASE NOTE: The page has the damage to the fold line mentioned above. Back then, the paper was high quality and the print and illustrations are crisp. Based on the date, it is probably the rotogravure printing technique.
This is NOT a recent copy or modern reproduction, but a GENUINE antique item.
