GILLRAY, James.


Britannia. 1791 [1811]*.

(Overall: 35 x 24 cm; image size: 27 x 20 cm). Original stipple engraved comic map of England and Wales with original hand-colouring. Faint manuscript signature to lower right corner of sheet. Some light toning, generally very good.

*This print was originally published by Gillray's mistress Hannah Humphreys in 1791 and subsequently reprinted on an 'ad hoc' basis usually in batches of twenty to thirty copies. This one on paper watermarked J. Whatman 1811. The initials 'G.M.' at the lower right corner of the image may be a false signature or, as has been suggested, an allusion to landscape artist George Moreland.
