Sir Francis Henry Jeune

"Matrimonial Causes"

This original 1891 Vanity Fair lithograph is of Judge Francis Jeune who is shown on the bench in his wig with monocle and entitled "Matrimonial Causes." The biography of Judge Jeune by Jehu Junior that comes with the print explains the title:

"He became known in Parliamentary Committee Rooms, and when Mr. Charles, Q. C., his only rival, was raised to the Bench, he took silk, and practised with still more gain until the late President of the Probate, Divorce, and Admiralty Division was promoted. Then, have long before appeared in one very celebrated divorce suit, the Lord Chancellor converted him into the junior Judicial Separatist - which was a very proper thing to do with one who knew both the Church and the World so well.."

The print comes matted to a standard frame size of 16 x 20 inches and encased in a protective plastic sleeve.
