t-cep134Rare original Davison’s ‘Cheap Prints’, produced in Alnwick, England between 1812-1817. Popular in London in the early 19th century, these prints were usually pasted on walls, and are therefore rare as such. Issued in black and white, this specimen has contemporary coloring. This specimen, of unknown title and not listed in the list of 53 known Davison caricatures, shows a highland Scottish soldier next to a Carib indian. The appearance of sugar cane suggests that the setting is Jamaica. N
