    Lithograph of a banquet for Daniel o'Connell

    London: 1844. A large Lithograph of a banquet for Daniel O'Connell. Chalk lithograph by an unknown engraver and publisher. C1844, Although not stated on the image, this almost certainly represents the banquet given in honour of O'Connell at the Covent Garden theatre on March 13th 1844. This was reported on in the Illustrated London News of the time, which bore a much smaller illustration. An article in the Times recorded that the dinner was given "to show," as the announcements expressed it, "the admiration entertained by Englishmen for his constant and consistent advocacy of the rights and privileges of Irishmen, for more than 40 years."

    London: 1844. A large Lithograph of a banquet for Daniel O'Connell. Chalk lithograph by an unknown engraver and publisher. C1844, Although not stated on the image, this almost certainly represents the banquet given in honour of O'Connell at the Covent Garden theatre on March 13th 1844. This was reported on in the Illustrated London News of the time, which bore a much smaller illustration. An article in the Times recorded that the dinner was given "to show," as the announcements expressed it, "the admiration entertained by Englishmen for his constant and consistent advocacy of the rights and privileges of Irishmen, for more than 40 years." This was a fascinating time in Irish Politics. Following the massive rallies and gatherings in Ireland to obtain the repeal of repressive legislation, O'Connell was arrested and charged with "creating discontent and disaffection" among the Queen's subjects. The trial began in January 1844 and O'Connell was of course found guilty in February. Sentence was deferred, and O'Connell began the equivalent of a "grand progress" through England, and to Westminster, where he presented a bill to Parliament. In May (after this banquet) he was sentenced to a year's imprisonment. The Covent Garden theatre burnt down in the 1850's. Some pencil notes to the rear. A little marginal nicking to the corners and small closed tear. Single pin hole to the side. 280 by 410mm (11 by 16¼ inches).

    . Grande lithographie d'un banquet pour Daniel O'Connell. Lithographie à la craie d'un graveur et éditeur inconnu. C1844. Bien que cela ne soit pas indiqué sur l'image, il est presque certain que cette lithographie représente le banquet donné en l'honneur de Daniel O'Connell au théâtre de Covent Garden le 13 mars 1844. Cet événement a fait l'objet d'un article dans l'Illustrated London News de l'époque, qui comportait une illustration beaucoup plus petite. Un article du Times indiquait que le dîner avait été organisé "pour montrer", comme l'indiquaient les annonces, "l'admiration des Anglais pour sa défense constante et cohérente des droits et des privilèges des Irlandais, depuis plus de 40 ans". C'est une période fascinante de la politique irlandaise. À la suite des rassemblements massifs organisés en Irlande pour obtenir l'abrogation de la législation répressive, O'Connell a été arrêté et accusé de "créer du mécontentement et de la désaffection" parmi les sujets de la Reine. Le procès s'ouvre en janvier 1844 et O'Connell est bien sûr déclaré coupable en février. La sentence est reportée et O'Connell entame l'équivalent d'une "grande progression" à travers l'Angleterre, jusqu'à Westminster, où il présente un projet de loi au Parlement. En mai (après ce banquet), il est condamné à un an de prison. Le théâtre de Covent Garden a brûlé dans les années 1850. Quelques notes au crayon au verso. Une petite entaille marginale aux coins et une petite déchirure fermée. Un seul trou d'épingle sur le côté. 280 x 410 mm
