Nelson's Victory: or, Good News operating upon Loyal Feelings

(Side 1)

Sheet size: 16 3/8 x 11 1/2 inches
(trimmed from full sheet)

Condition
Good/Very Good: typical browning of extreme edges of paper; scattered light foxing;
narrow bottom margin as the print was trimmed down from a full sheet.

NOTE: This print is not from the 1847-1851 Bohn edition (it has no plate number) but IS printed on both sides, so is not an earlier lifetime print. Some sources would put this at around 1830 from the McLean edition of Gillray prints. Another possibility is that Bohn printed this without numbering to have hand-coloured and sold individually.
