englischThis study is the first comprehensive account of the motifs used in England from the time of the Commonwealth until the debate on the Reform Act of 1832 in the then important medium of political prints to demand, celebrate or defend constitutional liberty. Based on an extensive corpus of extant prints, the study describes the genesis and the “graphic career” of each motif and shows how the motifs were used, in which contexts they appeared, what their meaning was and what significance they had at different times over a period of almost two hundred years.
