Original Hand-Colored Caricature Engravings Depicting Napoleon and His Enemies (6)

Original Hand-Colored Caricature Engravings Depicting Napoleon and His Enemies (6)

Dating from the period 1804-1812, these original engravings are beautifully hand-colored, and caricature Napoleon as his glorious ambitions are exposed and thwarted at every turn. Published in London by Thomas Tegg, one of the largest booksellers of the period, the 17" x 11" prints are extremely well struck and vividly colored. As a group, the prints provide a fascinating perspective on English public reaction to Napoleon and his wars, with anger and disdain fueling each of the images. In the 1812 print, the creatures and flames of Hell itself surround the fading Emperor as he brandishes a broken sabre. Amazing! Some edge and corner wear, including minor chips and tears, all of which is limited to the wide borders. One print has been too tightly cropped along its top edge, with the border wholly missing; however, the central image is not affected. Overall condition is EX.
