A Perfect Fright or the Ogreman Duke in Ernest_.
CJG. [Charles Jameson Grant.]
Pub by Tregear Cheapside 1832.
Hand-coloured lithograph. Sheet: 255 x 350mm (10 x 13¾''). Trimmed. Slight damage on right.
Satire on Ernest Augustus, Duke of Cumberland and King of Hanover (1771 - 1851), son of George III. The Duke, with large head, huge moustache and whiskers and savage teeth, rides a galloping horse, his hands crossed on his breast; he glares at two young women, terrified, who scream, brandishing parasol, a third diving over a fence. A signpost on the road points 'To Barnes'. Ernest was the subject of more allegations in 1832, when two young women accused him of trying to ride them down as they walked near Hammersmith. The Duke had not left his grounds at Kew on the day in question, and was able to ascertain that the rider was one of his equerries, who professed not to have seen the women. Nevertheless, newspapers continued to print references to the incident, suggesting that Ernest had done what the women stated, and was cravenly trying to push blame on another. By caricaturist Charles Jameson Grant (1830 - 1852; fl.).

A potato-headed figure with a globe for a body evidently prepared for all weathers. A satire on Patrick Murphy (1782 - 1847), weather prophet. His name was very prominent in 1838 as the author of ‘The Weather Almanack (on Scientific Principles, showing the State of the Weather for every Day of the Year 1838). By P. Murphy, Esq., M.N.S'. Under the date of 20 January he said ‘Fair, prob. lowest deg. of winter temp.’ By a happy chance this proved to be a remarkably cold day, the thermometer at sunrise standing at four degrees below zero. This circumstance raised his celebrity to a great height as a weather prophet, and the shop of his publishers, Messrs. Whittaker & Co., was besieged with customers, while the winter of 1837-8 became known as Murphy's winter.
