[Pub. June 4. 1790 by C. Ansell No. 5 Upper John Street, Fitzroy Chapel, I. Matthews No. 441 Strand. & Molteno, Colnaghi & Co. No. 132. Pall Mall.]
Very fine stipple, printed in colour. Sheet 330 x 180mm (13 x 7"). Trimmed from a larger image, laid on album paper.
George III, seated on a throne upon a pedestal lettered 'Redeunt Saturnia Regna', dressed in his ermine-lined robes of state with the chain of the Garter about his shoulders. He is being crowned by Hygieia, Greek goddess of health, cleanliness, and sanitation. Britannia seated on the ground below gesturing to two putti with a cornucopia filled with gold coins. In the summer of 1788 George III had a serious mental episode that left him incapable of ruling, possibly caused by either porphyria, biplar disorder or arsenic poisoning. In February 1789 the Regency Bill passed the House of Commons, but before the House of Lords could pass the bill, George recovered. Although the image is trimmed, losing the figures of Abundantia and Fame in side niches, the colour printing is superb.

George Kinloch Esq.r M.P.
George Kinloch Esq.r M.P. On the 22nd Dec.r 1819, Forced to flee his Country and proclaimed an Outlaw for having advocated the cause of People and the necessity of Reform. On the 22nd Dec.r 1832, Proclaimed the chosen Representative of the Town of Dundee in the Reformed House of Commons.
Drawn on Stone by W.Sharp from a Minature by Miss M Saunders.
[Printed by C. Hullmandel] [c. 1832]
Lithograph, sheet 7¾ x 5¼" (170 x 135mm).
Bust portrait of the Scottish politician and reformer George Kinloch (1775 –1833). His first involvement with politics was in 1814 and involved the extension of the harbour in Dundee, a project which earned him the gratitude of business interests in the city. His involvement with mass meetings in 1817 and 1819 agitating for Parliamentary reform attracted less favorable attention, and he was forced to flee to France and was declared an outlaw. In 1822 his daughter was presented to George IV in Edinburgh and interceded for him, and he was able to return. When Dundee was given representation in Parliament by the Reform Act 1832, Kinloch was elected MP. His 1831 speech to voters included his anti slavery views. He probably gained his anti slavery views when in 1795 Kinloch inherited a slave plantation "The Grange" in Jamaica from his uncle, which he sold in 1804. He died in London two months after the start of Parliament; his body was brought back to Scotland for burial at the Kinloch Chapel at Meigle.

An allegory of the choices of life: children stream from between the legs of a woman in the foreground to pass through an arch to live their lives, with the middle ground filled with people partying and brawling. On the left others are being tortured in a cave, a gallows above; on the right is a burning church. Far fewer people pass a narrower arch and join a steep path up to Heaven. Published in 'Epicteti Enchiridium', this is an illustration of Matthew 7:13: ''Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it''.
