The Guard Wot Looks Arter the Sovereign

by [Ireland] [McLean, Thomas] Pry, Paul

Condition: See description

London: T. McLean 26 Haymarket, 1829. Satirical cartoon published April 28, 1829, satirizing the Marchioness of Conyngham, wife of an Irish peer, treasured mistress of King George IV and at one time Czar Nicholas. See BM Satires No. 15733. Lady Conyngham stands as a very heavy woman, feet apart, with a cocked blunderbuss under her arm, in the manner of a gamekeeper. The caption reads "I says to our Governor says I... keep your eye on them ere Leaders George. 9 3/8 x 13 1/4" with very small margins, tipped onto a larger sheet, with the actual name of the satirized person penciled below in an early hand. Very fresh period hand color. Very crisp.
