Liverpool, Jabez Vale, 1840

Rare Liverpool printed broadside. The text consists of a quote from Lord Byron followed by a nineteen-line text praising the city and giving details of its topography and features of interest.

Nanking porcelain was a major export item and the city would have been of great interest to people in the West. The blue on white of the broadside presumably reflects the distinctive blue-and-white porcelain itself.
