In the 1800s carrying a walking stick / cane was a symbol of a gentleman who was fashion conscious, but one who was also ready to defend himself. Whilst fencing was still practiced, it did not enjoy the same popularity with the newly empowered bourgeoisie. Enterprising fencing masters soon translated their skills to the use of the walking stick or la canne. Fascinatingly, 'la canne de combat' is still a sport practiced today by thousands of cannistes around the world. Magnifique certificat militaire de compétence dans l'art du combat à la canne. Les soldats devaient acquérir de nombreuses compétences différentes. Ce diplôme particulier a été décerné à Monsieur Joseph Franc du 115e Régiment d'Infanterie Française. Compléter avec les signatures à l'encre des instructeurs présents. Non daté, mais vers 1870. 325 x 490 mm (12¾ x 19¼ pouces). A quelques taches et déchirures fermées, mais généralement en bon état. Dans les années 1800, porter une canne / une canne était le symbole d'un gentleman soucieux de la mode, mais également prêt à se défendre. Alors que l'escrime était encore pratiquée, elle ne jouissait pas de la même popularité auprès de la bourgeoisie nouvellement investie. Les maîtres d'armes entreprenants ont rapidement traduit leurs compétences dans l'utilisation de la canne ou de la canne. Fascinant, la canne de combat est toujours un sport pratiqué aujourd'hui par des milliers de cannistes à travers le monde.

Glaze and mounted under later gold passe partout with gilt frame Images and frames are in excellent condition. images size 115 mm x 70 mm Frame size 245 by 200mm (9¾ by 7¾ inches).
    Born in 1838 in Dunfermline, Scotland, he moved to Edinburgh, beginning to exhibit works at the Royal Scottish Academy in 1857, and then to London. Though he worked variously as a painter, sculptor and stained glass designer, John Lawson is best remembered as an illustrator of books and periodicals. His early, predominantly black and white, images mark him out as one of that striking generation of the 'Illustrators of the Sixties', and relate to those by his fellow Scotsman, Joseph Noel Paton, who is likely to have been a close friend. However, his later colour plates reveal his ability to adapt to a new market for popular children's books and annuals, and so work alongside his eldest daughter, Lizzie Mack.
    His known contributions include: Stories Told to a Child by the author of 'Studies for Stories' (illus. with others, London, Alexander Strahan, 1865), Nursery Times; or, Stories about the Little Ones by An Old Nurse (London, Griffith & Farran, 1867), The Daisy and her Friends. Simple tales and stories for children by Frances Freeling Broderip (illus. with others, London, Frederick Warne & Co., 1869), The Children's Garland from the Best Poets selected by Coventry Patmore (London, Macmillan & Co., 1873), Little Talks with Little People (illus. with others, London, Cassell, Petter & Galpin, 1877?), The Little Folks' Picture Album (illus. with others, London, Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co., 1877), Little Rosebud's Picture Book (illus. with others, London, George Routledge & Sons, 1879), Clever Hans by the Brothers Grimm (London, Thos. de la Rue & Co., 188?), God is Love.
