Pub by T. McLean 26 Haymarket. [n.d., c.1828.]
Fine hand-coloured etching. 370 x 260mm (14½ x 10¼"), large margins. Cut to platemark on left.
George IV depicted as Falstaff, with Lady Conyngham as the grotesquely fat Doll Tearsheet on his knee. Heath seems to have based this scene on Henry Fuseli's painting published by the Boydell Shakepeare Gallery, 1805.
