A satire of the duel between John Wilkes and Lord William Talbot, fought on 5th October 1762 over Wilkes' mockery of Talbot in the 'North Briton'.

The lack of blood caused rumours that the duel was a stunt, inspiring satires such as this.

George Parker Bidder (1806-1878), the English engineer, architect and calculating prodigy. In 1834 Robert Stephenson, whose acquaintance he had made in Edinburgh, offered him an appointment on the London & Birmingham Railway, and in the succeeding year or two he began to assist George Stephenson in his parliamentary work, which at that time included schemes for railways between London and Brighton and between Manchester and Rugby via the Potteries. In 1837 he was engaged with Stephenson in building the Blackwall Railway, and it was he who designed the peculiar method of disconnecting a carriage at each station while the rest of the train went on without stopping, which was employed in the early days of that line when it was worked by means of a cable. He also advised on the construction of the Belgian railways; with Robert Stephenson he made the first railway in Norway, from Christiania to Eidsvold; he was engineer-in-chief of the Danish railways, and he was largely concerned with railways in India, where he strongly and successfully opposed break of gauge on through routes. In 1860 he was elected president of the Institution of Civil Engineers. He was also one of the founders of the Electric Telegraph Company, which enabled the public generally to enjoy the benefits of telegraphic communication. In hydraulic engineering, he was the designer of the Victoria Docks (London). Bidder also investigated the practicality of steam trawlers in conjunction with Samuel Lake.

A court scene with the accused (a coachman) being the only civilian, the judge and lawyer all wearing huge bearskins. Wellington stands next to the accused, dressed as a Grenadier Guard.

Eventually Heath gave up the monogram because of its wide use.

Cardinal Stephen Langton standing behind the altar in Bury St Edmund's in 1213, pointing to the charter of liberties, the barons of England raising their hands in agreement. The Charter of Liberties was issued by Henry I upon his ascension to the throne in 1100, addressing abuses of royal power, such as over-taxation of the barons, the abuse of vacant sees, and the practices of simony and pluralism. It was generally ignored by monarchs until 1213, when Langton, the Archbishop of Canterbury, reminded the nobles that their liberties had been guaranteed a century before. In the face of such unified opposition King John opened negotiations and the Magna Carta was signed two years later. The quality of the colour printing is particularly good.

[Monogram of Paul Pry - William Heath] Esq.r del..
Pub June 26 1829 by T. McLean 26 Haymarket Sold Publisher of P. Prys Caricatures.
Hand-coloured etching. 370 x 260mm (14½ x 10¼"), on paper watermarked 'J Whatman Turkey Mill 1828', with large margins.
Frederick Peter Delmé-Radcliffe (1804-1871), the noted gentleman jockey in charge of the King's Stud, depicted as a thin man in riding dress with top-hat and top-boots, holding out a betting-book. The performance of the king's horse 'The Colonel' at the Ascot Gold Cup on June 18th disappointed William IV; a letter appeared in the 'Sporting Magazine', signed by 'Independence', claiming the horse had been seen being hacked by a drunken rider only four days before the race. Delmé-Radcliffe issued a denial, but had difficulty getting it published. Heath gives a nod to the author of the letter by referencing the Greek struggle for independence. 'Paul Pry' was the pseudonym of William Heath.

Lond. Pub November 29 1795 by S W Fores N 50 Piccadilly. Folios of Caracatures Lent out for the Evening.
Coloured etching, 18th century watermark. 345 x 255mm (13½ x 10"). Trimmed within plate at bottom, tears taped, creasing and stains.
A man in old-fashioned dress stands holding an 'Address' is in his right hand, with a document inscribed 'obervation' [sic] protruding from his coat-pocket, before a disinterested audience. His extensive speech under the image warns about 'that bold Monster Sedition who Stalks abroad in Broad Day Light Gemmen to destroy our Glorious Constitution & Throw the Balance of power from its place'. A satire on 'cits' and on the addresses deploring seditious meetings and approving of the measures taken against them. George suggests that the speaker could be Alderman Samuel Birch (1757-1841), a fervent supporter of the Volunteer Regiments and lieutenant-colonel commandant of the 1st regiment of Loyal London volunteers, later Lord Mayor of London.
