George III: A Life in Caricature.
Comedy, especially political and social satire, was a characteristic of Austen's time. The famous satirists of the day often worked in colorful cartoons. George III's long reign (1760-1820), his changing popularity, his madness whcih resulted in the long Regency, and family divisions all inspired a great deal of caricature, captured here in this oversized art book (10" by 10"). This copy has a tear to the rear panel of the dust jacket. Thames & Hudson, 2007. Hb, Dj. Publ. at $45. NEW. $25.00
