Additional Details

A careful re-engraving of this 1774 British satirical print by Francis Edward Adams, showing Boston customs officer John Malcolm after he had been tarred and feathered, threatened with hanging, and forced to drink tea. Apparently scarcer than the original; none traced at auction since 1937.
