Abbey, J.R. Life in England in aquatint and lithography, 1770-1860, 360.
BAC: British Art Center copy is the Abbey copy.
Text, with minor variations in the first volume, is the same as that in Life of Napoleon, 1823-28, and it appears the book was issued simultaneously in parts by Cumberland and Fairburn, the latter using illustrations by Cruikshank. The plates by Cruikshank proved more attractive,for later issues contain a Cumberland imprint, the probable reason being that the portraits were discarded for the more lively drawings of Cruikshank. Cf. Abbey.
Illustrations by Ridley & Blood and T. Blood; after W[illiam] Bromley and Phillips.
