Giles Balne

Giles Balne, Printer, 1777, was in a great position. He printed lottery tickets, then won the jackpot, then bought the Vauxhall Gardens, then spent the rest of his days printing amazing posters for them. This poster is 780 x 532mm and is one of seven kept at the Bodleian Library in the John Johnson collection in Oxford. Well worth a visit to see the real thing.
