Railway Mania, 1845. Creator: Alfred Crowquill Featured Print

Railway Mania, 1845. Creator: Alfred Crowquill

Railway Mania, 1845. Speculators hang on to the tail of a long-haired troll-like creature riding a steam locomotive, the personification of Railway Mania'. Written and illustrated by Alfred Crowquill: Railway Speculation has become the sole object of the world - cupidity is aroused, and roguery shields itself under its name, as a more safe and rapid way of gaining its ends. Abroad, as well as at home, has it proved the rallying point of all rascality - the honest man is carried away by the current and becomes absorbed in the vortex - the timid, the quiet, the moral, and he who "has no speculation in his eyes," are at last, after some slight hesitation, caught in the circle of the whirlpool as it expands, and they follow in the giddy whirl with as much excitement as those whom they have watched with pity and derision'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

John Law, Scottish economist, late 17th-early 18th century (c1880). Artist: Whymper

John Law, Scottish economist, late 17th-early 18th century (c1880). A Scottish economist, gambler, banker, murderer, royal advisor, exile, rake and adventurer, Law (1671-1729) fled to France after killing a man in a duel. Gaining the favour of the Regent of France, the Duc d'Orleans, he became influential in French political and economic circles. He is best known as the founder of the Mississippi Scheme (1717-1720) to develop colonies in the Mississippi valley, which gained him great popularity in France and made him a paper millionaire. The scheme was largely based on speculation rather than actual economic growth however, and a crisis in confidence caused the Mississippi Bubble to burst, forcing Law to leave France, dying in poverty in Venice. A print from Cassell's History of the United States, by Edmund Ollier, Volume I, Cassell Petter and Galpin, London, c1880
