Print of the Month - July 2014

Printed by Bradshaw & Blacklock using the Baxter Process in the early 1850s.

Taken from the Raphael Cartoons at Hampton Court before they were moved to South Kensington.

Advertised in 1854 together with 6 other subjects of the Raphael Cartoons in Bradshaw’s Hand-Book to the Manufacturing Districts of Great Britain.

Originally sold for 2s each or 14s the set of seven.

Signed ‘Bradshaw & Blacklock, Licencees’ in the bottom centre. Print size 5 3/4 x 7 1/4 ins.

This subject was also printed by George Baxter and Le Blond & Co.

Baxter printed his Raphael Cartoons using his Baxterotype Process and the fact that Bradshaw & Blacklock also produced a set of these subjects so soon after buying a licence led to a fall out between the two firms.

Bradshaw & Blacklock are probably best known for their publication of the Bradshaw’s Travel Guides.
