S.r John Fielding, K.t.
Hone pinx.t. M.c Ardell fecit.
Sold by C. Marsh at Charing Cross and R. Withy in Cornhill.
Rare mezzotint, sheet 395 x 290mm (15½ x 11½"). Trimmed and glued to album paper. Some surface dirt, creasing and some light foxing at edges.
Three quarter seated portrait of Sir John Fielding (1721-1780), English magistrate and social reformer. He rests his left hand on the 'Holy Bible' and 'Statuits at Large Magna Charta' and his right holds a rolled document labelled 'Plan of' on his knee. He wears a dark coat with narrow embroidered trim along edge and cuffs, over an embroidered waistcoat and a narrow dark band just above his closed eyes. Despite being blinded in a navy accident aged 19, Fielding set up his own business and, in his spare time, studied law. He worked very closely with his half-brother Henry Fielding (a chief magistrate as well as a novelist), creating the first professional police force, the Bow Street Runners. Known as the "Blind Beak", he could allegedly recognise three thousand criminals by the sounds of their voices.

A view of George IV's extravagent banquet held at Westminster hall after his coronation. The interior of Westminster Hall had been subdivided by wooden partitions to serve as courtrooms and these all had to be demolished to create the large space required for the coronation banquet, which required galleries for 2,934 spectators and 1,268 diners seated at 47 tables, some of which had to be sited in other parts of the palace. A temporary triumphal arch was erected at the north end of the hall in the style of a medieval castle. In accordance with the vogue for Romanticism and with his own taste for flamboyant clothes, George insisted that the participants should dress in Tudor and Stuart period costumes.

On 1st August 1814 a series of events celebrating both the end of the Napoleonic Wars and the centenary of Hanoverian rule in England. In St James's Park a Chinese bridge with a pagoda was built over the lake; in Green Park a revolving Temple of Concord was constructed by Sir William Congreve (of rocket fame); and in Hyde Park naval battles with miniature frigates were fought (the 'Nile' and 'Trafalgar' against the French and a third against the Americans, a reminder that Britain was still fighting the War of 1812). The battles were successful events: however the pagoda in St James's Park was set alight by fireworks, killing one and injuring another; and the balloon ascent, by James Sadler (1753-1828, the first English balloonist) did not go as planned and he had to make an emergency landing.

Caricature of a Spanish guerrilla, dressed like a peasant mountaineer rather than of a soldier, standing on a ledge, cocking his musket as he sees regular troops below.

This figure is presumably a Republican, fighting against the Monarchist 'Army of the Faith' (subject of a companion print, BM 14522). In the end order was restored when the European powers agreed that Louis XVIII could lead a French Army of 100,000 into Spain.
