Shakespeare Sacrificed ; or the Offering to Avarice...

by Gillray, James

Condition: Very Good

1851. Map/Print. Very Good. No Binding. Etching. James Gillray (1757-1815). From the original plate. BOHN EDITION 1851. Gillray, James (1757-1815), English Caricaturist, one of the fathers of political cartooning.

Characterized by pitiless exaggeration of the personalities and physical features of their subjects, they set the style for later English political cartooning..
