“The Durham Lamb On his Freehold” 1826 Northumberland Election Print SOLD

“The Durham Lamb On his Freehold”

A  lithograph mounted in a composte frame c.1826.
This has formed part of my collection for the last twenty five years.

John Lambton (1792-1840, 1st
Earl of Durham from 1833), satirised as a ram in a very small enclosure,
surrounded by jeering crowds. The scene is on the Northumberland sea-shore,
with Tynemouth Castle behind. The elections in Southern Northumberland in 1826 were particularly vitriolic and were the subject of a series of
satires. Lambton was the Durham MP until he was ennobled as Baron Durham in
1828. He served as Lord Privy Seal under Earl Grey, Governor General of the Province of Canada 1838-9, during which time his ‘Report on the Affairs of British North
America’ recommended the creation of the Canadian Parliament.

Frame size 12 inches x 10½
inches approx (30cms x 23 cms)
