The Nannau Oak in Merionethshire (now Gwynedd). According to legend, Howel Sele, Lord of Nannau, attempted to kill his cousin, Owen Glyndwr. Saved by armour under his clothes, Owen had Howel killed and secretly hidden in the hollow of the oak, where his skeleton was found forty years later. The tree had a bad reputation and was known as 'The Hollow Oak of the Demons' (Derwen Ceubren yr Ellyll). According to Pennant it was 400 years old and twenty-eight feet in circumference. A sundial with an inscription marks the spot it once stood at Nannau House.

[by Charles Williams]
Pub.d Feb.y 1818 by S.W. Fores No 50 Piccadilly
Etching with hand-colouring, platemark 250 x 350mm (9¾ x 13¾") large margins. Paper watermarked '1816'.
Satire on Queen Charlotte's response to the death of Princess Charlotte Augusta of Wales in 1817. Queen Charlotte (right) was in Bath at the time, and received the address of the Bath Corporation (to which she attends here with avid attention) at almost the same time as news of Princess Charlotte's death. A messenger (centre) delivers both pieces of news, Queen Charlotte taking the former and Princess Charlotte's husband Leopold I of Belgium responding to the latter. 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.

[Rennoldson after Samuel Wale, c.1770]
Engraving, platemark 180 x 115mm (7 x 4½"). Small margins.
In 1751 John and Ruth Osborn of Tring were accused of witchcraft. A farmer who had refused to spare them some buttermilk subsequently fell ill, and believed he had been cursed by Ruth Osborn. Soon it was announced by town criers that the Osborns were to be ducked in Tring for their 'crimes', and even though they sought sanctuary in the local church, they were dragged out by a baying crowd, and ducked. Ruth Osborn was drowned and while John Osborn survived the ducking, he died soon after. Engraving published in the 'Tyburn Chronicle'. The source drawing by Samuel Wale, a prominent artist who was a founder member of the Royal Academy of Arts, is in the British Museum (registration number 1863,0214.783).

William Pitt the Younger became Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports in August 1792, at a salary of £3,000. However after he was Prime Minister in 1794 he played little role in their defence until his resignation in 1801, when he could devote more time. He formed the Cinque Port Volunteers in 1802 giving them the duty of defending Hastings, New Romney, Hythe, Dover and Sandwich, along with the two 'Antient Towns' of Winchelsea and Rye, and often drilled them in his capacity as Colonel Commandant. This print was published only two months before his return to office in May, 1804.
