An officer with a high plumed hat and in the uniform of the St. James's volunteer sits on thin, tired-looking horse in a parade ground. He holds only one of the horse's reins and a drawn sabre over his right shoulder. Despite his attire, his demeanour is unmilitary, his posture and facial expression languid. A crowd of people watch from a pavilion in the background on the left and from behind a paling on the right. The scene is a reference to the presentation of colours by the Duchess of York to the St. James Volunteers on 5 July; the colonel was Baron Amherst

Prints commemorating the recovery of King George III of England ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1790 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This set of three prints reproduces two displays of transparent paintings and illuminations in celebration of the recovery of King George III from his second episode of insanity in 1789. The aquatint and stipple engravings are signed by Wm. Hamilton and P.W. Tomkins. The aquatint depicts the Bank of England facade decorated for the event. The stipple engraving, which reproduces the decorations's centerpiece, shows the city of London with sword and charter next to Britannia's triumphal car driven by the goddess of Health, blessed by Peace and Prosperity. The third print, engraved by Francesco Bertolozzi, reproduces the "transparency exhibited at this House" [of Commons] depicting the King being crowned by allegorical figures. The artist combines the stipple technique he had developed with multicolor printing; this style contributed to the immense popularity he enjoyed during his long sojourn in London. Fine etched lines enhance shadows and create volumes, while hand and à la poupée coloring adds that aspect of miniature technique typical of Bartolozzi's work

William Pitt as an obstetrician and medicine vendor, accompanied by Henry Dundas as his assistant, disputing with Napoleon Bonaparte their respective medicinal remedies for the delivery of Europe. Etching after C. Ansell (?), 1800 by Charles Ansell ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1800 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The print contrasts Pitt's use of cash to support his Austrian allies with Napoleon's use of military force. Pitt is represented both as an accoucheur or man-midwife (he has a pair of forceps labeled "Income tax" sticking out of his pocket) and as a medicine vendor ("quack doctor"). To the left, Dundas wears a Scottish bonnet and a plaid suit in the style of the harlequin costume traditionally worn by the quack-doctor's zany. Napoleon carries a sword (as the obstetrician does in the print "Doctor Forceps" by Matthias Darly, 1773) with which he points to a pile of bolus-shaped (and musket-ball-shaped) pills. On the right his assistant uses a musket to shoot a bolus down the throat of one of the Austrian generals whom Napoleon had defeated at the battle of Marengo on 14 June 1800: either General Michael von Melas or General Pál Kray, both of whom are mentioned in the lettering. The British Museum catalogue suggests the shooting man may be Napoleon's general Louis Charles Antoine Desaix (1768-1800), though he would be an unsuitable candidate as he was killed by a musket ball at Marengo
