The Hon. Sir William Grantham

"Mr. Justice Grantham"

This is an original 1890 Vanity Fair print by Sir Leslie Ward (signed "Spy") of Justice William Grantham resplendent in his red robes and cute shoes. The print comes already matted to a standard frame size of 16 x 20 inches and enclosed in a protective plastic sleeve. It also comes with the biography of Judge Grantham by Jehu Junior published at the time the print was issued in 1890. The biography includes this review of Grantham's talents and limitations:

"He was not a great lawyer, but he made the best of things - including himself; and he has never been known to lose his temper. As a Judge, he has not been an unmitigated success; for he is sometimes overruled by the Court above him, and he has occasionally expressed himself too plainly for some people; as when he set the Principality by the ears, by asserting that the Welsh were liars."

This is a classic red robed judge, much valued by collectors.
