TITLE:  The colonies reduced - its companion CALL NUMBER:  PC 1 - 4183 (A size) [P&P] REPRODUCTION NUMBER:  LC-USZ62-34866 (b&w film copy neg.) RIGHTS INFORMATION:  No known restrictions on publication. SUMMARY:  Print shows two illustrations on a single sheet, on the top, Britannia is dismembered, her torso leaning against a globe with a banner "Date Obolum Belli Sario" and her arms and legs, labeled "Virg-", "Pennsyl-", "New York", and "New Eng-" are scattered on the ground before her, an olive branch has dropped from one hand. Idle ships sit in the harbor in the backgound and a broken tree on the right mimics Britannia. On the bottom, Lord Bute, while stabbing Britannia, lifts her skirt, exposing her buttocks to two men, one with a sword, the other with a cat-o'-nine-tails; a snake strikes at her knees. She has her spear aimed at America, a young Native woman, and has caught hold of her feathered skirt; America flees into the outstretched arms of a Frenchman who has both sword and pistol poised to defend her. Behind the melee a Dutchman makes off with a ship. MEDIUM:  1 print : etching. CREATED/PUBLISHED:  [1767] NOTES: Title from item. Design'd & engrav'd for the Political Register.
