Beschreibung:

1820’s Large Format Color Lithographs Featuring Boxing Greats Jack Randall and James Ward This pair of boxing lithographs, one from 1826 featuring bare knuckle pugilist and England’s first great Champion Jack Randall, the other from 1827 of boxer James Ward the first “scientific” boxer, measures 18" by 24" in their wood frames. The caption below the Randall lithograph tell us that this early fighter was born in 1794 and whipped all of Europe’s leading pugilists from “Jack the Butcher in 20 minutes” to “Turner in 2 hours and 16 minutes.” Randall, who never lost a match, originated the “one-two knockout punch” that quickly disposed of his opponents. The lithograph’s text reads that he was a small man “weighing 12 stone” and was the first of the “scientific” boxers beating much bigger men with his tactical maneuvering. Both pieces were published by “SW Forbes” of Piccadilly, London, England. Scattered spotting and foxing appear on both. Very good to excellent condition. Framed.
