Hand-coloured etching with small margins. Plate 255 x 361mm (10 x 14¼"). Slight crease upper left. Time stained.
Satire relating Catholic Emancipation to Russian triumphs against Turkey and to the Portuguese civil war. Wellington, Peel, and O'Connell strain at a thick rope inscribed 'Catholic Bill' with which they try to restrain John Bull. Bull tries to get at four dogs (Miguel I of Portugal, Charles X of France, Nicholas of Russia and (probably) Francis I). Nicholas attacks the prostrate 'turkey' with the turbaned head of the Sultan.
