Description:

A rare Irish issued satirical cartoon by the Dublin based publisher William McCleary.  

Abraham Bradley King, (Abraham Bradley King, (former Lord Mayor of Dublin [1813, 1821] and Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland) stands wearing ceremonial robes, attempts to force-feed a piece of an orange pudding into the mouth of Daniel O’Connell, who he grabs around the throat with his right hand and says to him;

“My dear Dan, do take this little bit, I perceive you are quite unaccustomed to this kind of Pudding however as you said to me, after a little practice it will become quiet easy and agreeable, it has been a favourite of mine for years, and I really believe it would be so still, but for his Majesties utter dislike to it.”

“Mr Dear Abraham I don’t well know how to refuse you, the sacrifices on your part have been so extraordinary, and so completely inunison with my best wishes that as I said before nothing but inspiration from above could accomplish, yet afterall my stomach being an entire stranger to such food, I’m afraid I shall never be able to digest it. “

“Take advice in turn Dan, do take it, what’s good for Master is good for man.”

William McCleary (1799 - 1820)

McCleary was one of the major Irish publishers of mainly pirated copies of London satirical prints. He began trading from premises located at 31 Lower Ormond Quay in 1791 and by 1798 his business had become sufficiently successful to allow him to move to a larger shop located on Nassau Street. McCleary’s decision in copying the caricatures of his rival and fellow Dubliner J. Sidebotham and undercutting the prices of the pirated versions of Sidebotham's caricatures. resulted into a long lasting feud between the two publishers. His trading addresses: 31 & later 18 Lower Ormond Quay (1791-1798) 21 Nassau Street, Dublin (1799, 1820) 32 Nassau Street, Dublin (1808) 39 Nassau Street, Dublin (1820)
