1850. "Cut Out for a Sawyer but Made Up a Lawyer" [Broadside]. [Great Britain]. Beware! Important Caution. Beware of a Pair of Bipeds, That Have Lately Escaped, The One from Jail, The Other "Cut out for a Sawyer but Made Up a Lawyer," From the Weddington Lane-Menagerie, And are Now Haunting this Neighbourhood in Shape of an Overseering Baboon and a Porcupine-Backed Lawyer. [N.p.]: Printed by Tympan, Frisket, & Co, Rob Row, [c. 1850]. 15" x 10-1/2" broadside, mounted, cut piece of letter laid down near center reading: "Yours resp[ectfull]y Wm Oram 43 Monday evening." Light browning and soiling, a few minor chips and some rubbing to edges, three horizontal fold lines. A curious, rare item. * The text of this satirical broadside continues (in part): "The Public are particularly Cautioned against the depredations of teh above-named FILTHY ANIMALS, as they are known to be peculiarly attached to that which is not their own:---i.e. 'Rates'." William Oran may have been the author of the broadside text. We were unable to locate a copy of this broadside in any library.
