Hand-coloured etching. Sheet: 255 x 365mm (10 x 14¼''). Trimmed and tipped into album sheet.
Two contrasting men, exemplifying different fashions and physiognomies. The printmaker William Heath (1794-1840) used the pseudonym Paul Pry (taken from the name of a character in John Poole's 1825 comedy, and used to describe a very inquisitive person) between 1827-9, and rather than signing his name he used the 'Paul Pry' monogram seen here, a small man holding a walking stick. However this figure began to be copied by other caricaturists (including Sharpshooter ) and so Heath reverted to his own name.

Hand-coloured etching. Sheet: 230 x 260mm (9 x 10¼''). Trimmed to printed border.
Princess Caroline, consort of the future George IV, changing her dress attended by Bartolomeo Bergami., her major-domo. During the regency Caroline was excluded from court and left the country to travel around the Mediterranean with Bergami. The Prince Regent, desirous of grounds for divorce, employed spies to watch Caroline and received almost weekly reports of her scandalous and improper behaviour: she was alleged to have shared a bed with Bergami on board a sailing vessel in the Bay of Naples, and to have allowed him to watch her bathe. This print refers to a ball in Naples (Vesuvius can be seen through the window) at which Caroline wore three different costumes, with Bergami said to have watched her change. One of her costumes was the Genius of History, with arms and breasts bare. Another witness claimed to have heard the couple speaking French, including the words 'mon coeur' ('my heart'), as here. Publication line taken from the impression in the British Museum, who attribute the print to Theodore Lane.

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.).
