A reduced copy of the famous 1803 satire by James Gillray, showing George III cupping Napoleon in his hand while scrutinizing him through a glass. The king exclaims: ''My little friend Grildrig, you have made a most admirable panegyric upon yourself and Country, but from what I can gather from your own relation, & the answers I have with much pains, wringed & extorted from you, I cannot but consider you to be one of the most pernicious, little odious reptiles, that nature ever suffer'd to crawl upon the surface of the Earth''.
See BM Satires 10019 for the original.
