London: Westminster Magazine. Very good. Image Dimensions 10.1 x 17.3 cm. This engraving originally appeared in the Westminster magazine, vol. 66 (March, 1778) p. 66. It depicts "British Commerce" as a cow whose horns are being cut off by "America" as an Indian, while the British Lion is asleep on the ground. On the left are Spain and France as men with bowls of milk, while Holland milks the cow. On the right are the "British People" in despair. In the background Admiral Richard Howe's ship, Eagle, has run aground outside Philadelphia while he and his brother, General William Howe, are asleep in the city. The print is nicely framed under glass. BM 5472; Cresswell, American Revolution 726. In 2008 a copy of this print sold at auction for $800.
