207 pp, 4to (11 1/8" H). B&w illustrations. "There have been few more consistent, or more satisfying, targets for cartoonists over the centuries than Royalty - above all in Britain where for over three hundred years our reigning monarchs have been satirised or flattered, ridiculed or glorified in the public print. (This book) sets out to document this continuing confrontation between the establishment and the caricaturists, from the reign of Elizabeth I to the present day. Political crises, religious schisms, national scandals and passing indiscretions all kindled the fires of contemporary cartoonists' inspiration: Charles I and Parliament, Popish plots and Jacobite invasions, Hanoverian mistresses, the excesses of the Regency, William IV and reform, Victoria and her ministers, Edward VII and his escapades, the Abdication crisis. Here too are the foreigners' views of our kings and queens and royal relatives, and generations of royal courtships and coronations, pomp and patronage seen through the eyes of some of Britain's greatest cartoonists. The work of Gillray, Rowlandson, Cruikshank, Tenniel, May, Beerbohm, Giles, Trog, and many others is testament to freedom of expression in this country and gives a fascinating perspective on the chequered careers of our rulers." Previous owner's initials, place and date in ink on free front endpaper; two tiny soiling marks on free front endpaper; light wear on bottom of boards; light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling.
