    Lithographic stereoview of the royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom 1851-53

     

    Honi soit qui mal y pense is a French maxim used as the motto of the British chivalric Order of the Garter. It is translated as "May he be shamed who thinks badly of it "[or "Shame be to him who thinks evil of it" or "Evil (or shame) be to him that evil thinks"—although the French phrase is not gendered. In current French usage, it may be used ironically to insinuate the presence of a hidden agenda or a conflict of interest.

     

    The lithograph was probably sold by Louis-Jules Dubosq. Lithographic stereoviews like these were given away for free by Dubosq with the purchase of one of his stereoscopes.
