Title above image reads; The Chancellor and + Chancellor An interesting hinged print, cut off just below the eyes, so that when the flap is lifted the second portrait of Lyndhurst is revealed. A double portrait of a. Chancellor Lord Brougham , the highlights of his tenure was the passing of the 1832 Reform Act, of which he was a staunch supporter, and the Slavery Abolition Act of 1833, the cause to which he had been devoted to for so many years. b. Chancellor Lord Lyndhurst, who figured conspicuously as an obstructionist in the House of Lords. His former adversary Lord Brougham, disgusted at his treatment by the Whig leaders, soon became his most powerful ally in opposition. Lyndhurst held the chancellorship from 1827–1830, 1834–1835, and 1841–1846.
