EXTREMELY RARE AND IMPORTANT POLITICAL CARTOON OF REVOLUTIONARY WAR INTEREST America, Circa 1773 or 1774
"Liberty Triumphant: Or the Downfall of Oppression." Attributed to Philadelphia and New York printmaker Henry Dawkins but published anonymously. Depicts discourse between Britains and Colonists regarding the British Tea Tax enacted in 1773 and the protests that followed in 1774, including the Boston Tea Party on December 16, 1773, with 18 figures and allegorical images, most with speech bubbles providing their thoughts on the political climate of the time. British figures are depicted on the left and American figures on the right, and each can be further identified with a key at the lower margin. Superimposed over a map of the Northern and Middle British colonies, Boston is featured in the top right corner and New York at the top center.
