The April Fool consigned to Infamy and Ridicule.
[by Charles Williams]
Pubd April 1st 1801 by S W Fores 50 Piccadilly. Folios of Caricatures lent out for the Evening
Etching with hand-colouring, platemark 280 x 390mm (11 x 15¼"). 18th century watermark. Trimmed to platemark.
The titular April Fool (possibly John James Hamilton, first marquis of Abercorn) stands with his arms around two women, wearing handbands labelled 'Ridicule' and 'Infamy'. On the right a third woman gestures towards the scene, proclaiming 'I have made him a fixed figure for the hand of Scorn to point her slow-moving finger at'. Etching by Charles Williams (1797 - 1830, fl.), prolific etcher of satires from his own designs and those of other artists (especially Woodward). Almost all his plates are anonymous and little work has been done to establish for certain which prints he made. As a result Williams is little-known in comparison with contemporaries such as Rowlandson and Gillray in spite of the comparable quality of some of his work.

A Scriptural and Classical Map shewing the Dispersion of the Earliest Colonies of Mankind,
A Scriptural and Classical Map shewing the Dispersion of the Earliest Colonies of Mankind, and including a Full Illustration of the Geography of Sacred and Ancient History. To the Right Honorable William Wyndham Baron Grenville, Chancellor of the University of Oxford, This Map Of Sacred and Ancient Civil History, Is with devout Submission and Respect, inscribed by His Lordship's Very obedient & Humble Servant, Thomas Heming.
Engraved by S.I. Neele 352 Strand.
Published by William Phillips, George Yard, Lombard Street Sep.r 25th 1816.
A very scarce engraved map. 660 x 980mm (26 x 38½"). Folded twice, one small tear just entering plate.
A separate-issue map of the Classical world, from the English Channel to the Persian Gulf, drawn up to accompany Heming's 'A Complete Survey of Scripture Geography: Containing an Historical Account of Primitive Nations'. Usually a map of this size is printed from two plates on separate sheets and then joined; such a large plate and sheet would have made this a very expensive production. We can trace no other example. This example of the map came from a folio of prints once belonging to Thomas Pitt, 1st Baron Camelford. However by the time this map was published both Pitt and his son (also Thomas) were both dead; as Pitt's daughter had married William Wyndham Grenville, to whom this map is dedicated, it is likely that this the dedicatee's own copy.
