Spooner's Protean Views No. 5. The Royal - - 1838. [1201057]
1838 - A hand colored lithograph. A novelty print, one of a series of transparency prints. Scene of a rose on a terrace, with a view of Windsor Castle in the background. When held up to the light, the rose gives way to a portrait of Queen Victoria, whole length in coronation robes seated on a throne. Both prints adhered to a window mount, with English inscription adhered below, including publisher's address, 'LONDON WILLIAM SPOONER 377 STRAND JUNE 1ST 1838.' Image 7 1/4" x 5 5/8" at center of mount paper. William Spooner published a series of 'Spooner's Transformations' during the nineteenth century, of which this print is number five. These novelty prints consisted of a scene or symbolic picture pasted onto a single window mount, with another print adhered to the verso. When held up to the light the first picture would fade, revealing the second print. Spooner also published other novelty prints in the form of movable prints, which utilised flaps and other paper mechanisms to reveal a hidden image. [Attributes: First Edition]
