Original hand colored lithograph by James Gillray (1756-1815). Henry Addington threatens Napoleon with the invasion of Paris with the faint support of Lord Hawksbury. Published in 1803. Britain ended the Treaty of Amiens and declared war on France in May of 1803. The tone of this lithograph reflects the diverse views from bravado to apprehension of the English, facing war with France. Political cartoons of this type were a very popular means of political expression and influence. Few have survived. This is the London, H. G. Bohn, 1851. Etching, 14 ¼” x 10”. Trimmed from larger sheet, narrow top margin. Military posturing: Henry Addington and a diminutive Napoleon facing each other defiantly across a narrow channel. First published in 1803. The reprinting was in response to the political turmoil in France. Louis-Napoleon was elected president in 1848, his power reinforced by the June Days Uprising. He masterminded a coup and as did his uncle, Napoleon I, declared himself Emperor in 1851. We found just one other copy of this 1851 printing valued at £195 ($260). This example is excellent with no foxing and mounted with mat, ready for framing.
