Engraving, platemark 255 x 180mm (10 x 7") large margins.
George Villiers, first duke of Buckingham (1592-1628), royal favourite, portrayed full-length with encampment and city in background. The initials 'RE' suggest the print was made by Renold Elstrack (1570-c.1625), the foremost English engraver of his time. In fact, Hind suggests that this is an eighteenth-century plate with Elstrack's initials fraudulently added to the second state. The first state, which bears text identifying the sitter and claiming dubiously that 'this plate hath been many years Preserved in a great persons Closet', was published (without the 'RE' monogram) by Benjamin Cole of Oxford (for an image of this state see NPG D5812).

William, Duke of Clarence (later William IV), in admiral's uniform with sword, kneels on both knees, arms extended, at the feet of a young woman who walks away. He is in profile to the left, caricatured, with words issuing from his coarse protruding lips: "O listen, listen to the voice of Love." The lady (called Grand Duchess Anna (Pavlovna) of Russia in the text but actually Catherine of Oldenburgh, the widowed sister of Tsar Alexander I) looks scornfully over her shoulder, pointing to a treasure-chest (left) filled with bags. Having lived a dissolute youth the Duke was deep in debt so had derserted his long-time consort Mrs Jordan and was on the lookout for a rich wife.
