Not at all a good day for poor old Socrates.

One day in 399 BC, the 70 year old philosopher Socrates stood before a jury of 500 of his fellow Athenians accused of "refusing to recognize the gods recognized by the state" and "of corrupting the youth." He was found guilty of his crime and his penalty was death by his own hand.

Poor bugger.

Socrates is printed on heavy glossy paper and measures 5" x 7.25". The total piece measures 9.5" x 6.5" overall and is blank on the reverse. This cool 104 year old illustration is in flawless condition; smooth and flat with no foxing and no dings. It looks as if it just rolled off the presses.

Matted, framed and displayed as a gallery grouping, these wonderful old black and white prints are simply spectacular. (Please note that the framed examples in the last photo are just to show how this might look when it's framed. Your antique print will come unframed.)

Surrender Dorothy offers a non-stop jaw-dropping cornucopia of frame-worthy antique and vintage prints, drawings, sketches, ads, plans, lithos, engravings, posters, maps, charts and illustrations of all kinds to adorn every room in your happy home. Terrific finds to gussy up your workplace too.
