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.

Mrs. Caudles Illustrated Curtain Lectures No.4 "You to go to Greenwich Fair, and race up and down the hill, If I were you I should hide my head under the clothes, and be ashamed of it!"
Published by Preston, 31 Burlington Arcade [c.1850]
Lithograph printed in brown ink with hand-colouring and gum arabic, fine, sheet 190 x 270mm (7½ x 10½").
Mrs Caudle was the most famous creation of the playwright and journalist Douglas William Jerrold (1803-1857). 'Mrs Caudle's Curtain Lectures were serialized in 'Punch' in 1845, and Thackeray wrote that ‘Almost all the events and perplexities of Cockney domestic economy pass before her’, wrote Thackeray of the character, ‘and … a student in the twentieth century may get out of her lectures as accurate pictures of London life as we can get out of the pictures of Hogarth’ (W. M. Thackeray, Contributions to the ‘Morning Chronicle’, ed. G. N. Ray, 1955, 94). This print is probably a separately-issued copy sold at Burlington Arcade, which runs alongside Burlington House between Piccadilly and Burlington Gardens.

The Cold Blooded Murderer or the Assassination of the Duke D'Enghein
[by Charles Williams]
Pubd June 2d 1804 by S W Fores No 50 Piccadilly. Folios of Caricatures lent out for the Evening
Etching with hand-colouring, 18th century watermark, platemark 250 x 360mm (9¾ x 14¼"). Small margins.
Satirical representation of the murder of Louis Antoine Henri de Bourbon-Condé, duke of Enghien (1772-1804). The only son of Louis Henri de Bourbon, Duke of Bourbon, and of Bathilde d'Orléans, the duke was arrested on suspicion of involvement in a plot to overthrow Napoleon in 1804 and shot after a court martial (rather than run through with a sabre, as suggested here). The act was intended to assist the establishment of the Empire by assuring the Jacobins that Napoleon's rule was a guarantee against the return of the Bourbons. Reactions abroad varied: Alexander of Russia suspended diplomatic relations, while other nations avoided offending Napoleon. Etched 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.

Satire on the Search for Arms Act, brought in December 1819. This print, in which a police-officer with a warrant searches the dormitory of a female boarding school during the night, responds specifically to protests against searches being conducted during the night on account that they would subject women to 'insult and indignity'. 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.

[Henry Heath.]
Pub Apl: 1829 by Tregear Cheapside London_
Hand-coloured etching. Sheet: 255 x 355mm (10 x 14"). Trimmed.
Wellington and Eldon (trying to influence him against Emancipation) in a tug-of-war for George IV. The bandage round the King's shoulder is inscribed 'Expediency' and is attached to Wellington's pole which is topped by a cross supporting a papal tiara. Round the King's waist and elbows is a bandage inscribed 'Coronation Oath' twisted round Eldon's pole which is topped by a mitre. The agonised King prances in front of the throne; he shrieks and his crown falls off. Wellington seems to be winning; he wears uniform with cavalry boots; Peel tugs at his sash, while Mackintosh, in Highland dress, holds Peel (Home Secretary). Eldon, who is in his shirt-sleeves, is supported only by Cumberland who wears hussar uniform, and holds his leader by the chin. George's mistress Lady Conyngham, behind Wellington, peeps from the draperies of the throne. After the title is a little figure registering astonishment in imitation of the Paul Pry (but not P. P.) signature of W. Heath.
