The Jacobites

The Jacobites.
A Catalogue of engraved portraits & satires

Oxford was a stronghold of the Jacobite movement. In the 18th century, Oxford printsellers were providing prints of the exiled Royal Family for the large Jacobite customer base within the University. In fact, it was once said by Willaim Pitt that, “Oxford is paved with Jacobites,” so it is somewhat appropriate that Sanders of Oxford is doing their bit to continue the tradition of selling Jacobite prints in Oxford.

The following work contains a few extremely rare, and in some cases unrecorded prints. This material derives from the library of Viscount Strathallan, whose family were Jacobite supporters. When the chance came to acquire the collection, we could not resist, especially given the success of our previous Jacobite catalogue of 2005. We at Sanders of Oxford hope that you enjoy it.
