    ----------------------Henry William Bunbury (1750-1811)------------------------

    Henry William Bunbury (1750 - 1811) was the son of Sir William Bunbury of Mildenhall, Suffolk. After completing his studies at Cambridge University he began to draw caricatures and other comic subjects, the first of which were etched and published in 1771. Bunbury then quickly rose to become one of the greatest satirical artists of the day with his etchings such as the series entitled, Hints to Bad Horsemen. He also became close friends with the great artist, Thomas Rowlandson, who later engraved many of Bunbury's designs. Throughout his career, Henry Bunbury enjoyed the patronage of the Duke of York who appointed him his Equerry in 1787.

    Info London.Thomas Macklin, Poets Gallery. 1792. Image size, 17 3/4 x 13 3/4 ins. Page size, 18 1/4 x 16 1/4 ins. Original line and stipple engraving by I.Chapman,

    The Bunbury-Macklin Shakespeare stipple engravings represent the best examples of this complicated process. Macklin created 'The Poet's Gallery' (1788-1799), which became England's second largest publishing house next to John Boydell's 'Shakespeare Gallery'.Macklin responded to Boydell's series by issuing his own Shakespeare etchings from 1792 to 1796. These works of art, however, were significantly different from Boydell's grandiose engravings. The entire series of twenty-five engravings and etchings was designed by Henry Bunbury, who chose mainly the comedies

    John Chapman: One of the most gifted stipple engravers of the late eighteenth century, relatively little is known of the life of John Chapman. It is believed he was born to a poor family and that most of his considerable skills were self taught.

      Alan, a wonderful surprise indeed. The title is "The Breakfast Symptoms of DrowsineSs. In old English, the double "s" at the end of a word had an elongated "s" that looks like "fs."

      Is your print watermarked "1815" like the one shown on the George Glazer Gallery website. Also, compare your dimensions, particularly the plate (image) size:

      Hi, Alan, and thank you for your thoughtful post. I should have realized that you had already done a scholarly examination to determine the authenticity and age. Your methods demonstrate your vast knowledge of prints --- an extremely complicated area, of which I know little. I love antique prints and am delighted that it is now in your remarkable collection.

      It is a privilege to have someone with your background participate on this board and welcome! As you have seen, there are quite a few who generously contribute their time and expertise to provide information, comments, and sometimes empirical research.

      When time allows, I pop in here and post when I can make a “hopefully” credible contribution. Best regards.

      Many thanks solver for your kind comment, but as you know we alway's learn one way or the other, i am still learning everyday, good word from Victor hugo say"when Human being died,we only know as much as a rain drop in the sea of knowledge"
      That say pretty much what we try to learn in a lifetime.
      Take care my friend, see you again on the site for sure.
