Abstract
  • [British Museum No. 13728]“Probably a copy of an English print. The King is on the throne (r.), with five advisers seated at a round table at the base of the dais; all are thrown into confusion by the arrival of a top-booted messenger (1.) who rushes into the room, hair on end, yelling. The Queens Arrived!!! The terrified King screams : The Devil!!!! His wig stands on end and his crown falls off; a bottle of Curacoa is upset. The Ministers are engaged on Plans for Divorce, a paper so inscribed is on the table ; all register terror. The Archbishop of Canterbury says The Lord have mercy on our wicked Souls, the pious Liverpool says Amen. All are broadly burlesqued, with goggling eyes and large heads in the manner of Woodward's 'Long Heads' or 'Lilli- putians'.” (Source: George)
