George III Zusammenfassung

George III: A Life in Caricature Kenneth Baker of Dorking

George III enjoyed one of the longest reigns (1760-1820) in English history, but his reputation fluctuated throughout the sixty years, and its ups and downs were charted with unprecedented candour and wit by some of the great caricaturists. Here, Kenneth Baker draws on his own extensive experience of high politics as well as his personal collection of caricatures to give us a fascinating vision of how the English saw their king. Many of these amusing, often irreverent images have not been published before and they provide a new dimension to the story of one of the nation's most well known but least understood monarchs.

George III Bewertungen

'A wonderful gathering of images from the bestial to the downright brutal, which shows 18th-century cartooning its savage best' - Independent
'Colourful, irreverent, frequently scatological ... a handsome alternative to a conventional biography' - Daily Telegraph
