Description: American Revolution
Print of the Tarring & Feathering of John Malcom in 1774 a British Tax Collector and Loyalist in Boston, Mass.
c. 1784, Fine Engraved Print Depicting the Tarring & Feather of "John Malcom," a British Tax Collector and Loyalist in Boston, measuring 8" x 9", French, Choice Very Fine.
This rare, historic and finely Engraved Print depicts the tarring and feathering of John Malcom in 1774. Malcom was a British tax collector and loyalist in Boston. This incident was one of the most publicized events during the Revolutionary period. The print appeared in Nicolas Ponce and Francois Godefroy's "Recueil d'estamples representant les differents evenements de la guerre qui a procure l'independance aux Etats unis de l'Amerique." This was the first French publication to name the United States in its title. Some light foxing at the left and top edges. Pencil notations on its blank verso. This Engraving is extremely crisp and dark, with exquisite sharp detail being ready to frame and display in any Revolutionary War Era collection.
