[ANDERSON] THE AZTEC LILLIPUTIANS FROM CENTRAL AMERICA. [London]: Printed by JWG, ca. 1851. Half-sheet monochrome lithograph bearing five vignettes of the supposed Iximayan Lilliputians appearing at the Britannia, Hoxton. The children play instruments and dress-up; the central image depicts a fanciful scene in an apparent Aztec temple with Maximo and Bartola the apparent focus of worship by their countrymen. Professor Anderson holds a drum in the lower right while one of the children pounds on it with sticks. Framed to 27 . x 20 1/8”. Small marginal losses and in-painting visible, but not examined out of frame. See Jay’s Journal of Anomalies, p. 91. In the bottom left, one of the Aztecs presents Queen Victoria with a rose. The lowermost caption of the poster, partially obscured by the frame, reads, “As they appeared before Her Majesty Queen Victoria and the Royal Family.”
