‘The Last Man on the Tichborne Jury,’ 1871
The London Stereoscopic and Photographic Company

carte de visite showing a cartoon by George Cruikshank satirising the 1871 trial of the Tichborne Claimant and the length of time — 102 days — for which it ran. The joke continues on the back of the mount, which is a spoof extract supposedly from The Times in 1930, written as if the trial were still ongoing some 60 years later.

Produced by the London Stereoscopic Company from a cartoon by George Cruikshank.

Entered at Stationers' Hall [an essential part of the copyright process] on 1 December 1871.

Condition: the print is missing the tip of its upper right hand corner but is otherwise in excellent condition, with good tonal range. The mount is clean, firm and solid. 

Dimensions: the dimensions of a standard carte de visite are approximately 4.1" by 2.5" (10.5 cm by 6.3 cm).
