    Very Slippy Weather

    A framed and mounted, hand coloured engraving by the Georgian satirist James Gillray. "An elderly man bumps violently on the pavement outside Hannah Humphrey's print shop in a sitting position; his legs (in tasselled Hessians) fly up, but he carefully holds a thermometer in a vertical position. Hat and wig fly off, coins pour from his breeches pocket, a snuff-box bowls away, a dog barks at him. He is unobserved by four men who gaze at the shop-window, and by a grotesquely ugly ragged boy with skates, who walks past, intent on the window. he shop-front is depicted in detail: a glass-paned door (r.), with a fan-light above it. 'Humphrey' over the door; 'N° 27' on the door-post. Through the glass door two men, one a fat drink-blotched parson, are seen inspecting 'Catholic Emancipation'. Next the door (l.) is a bow-fronted shop-window, every pane filled with one of Gillray's prints. The upper rightow are (l. to r.): 'Taking Physick' , 'A Gentle Emetic', 'A Brisk Cathartic'  .'Breathing a Vein' , 'Charming Well again', all probably drawn by Sneyd. The next row: 'in at the Death', 'French Gingerbd Baker', 'King of Brobdingg & Gulliver', 'Kick at ye Broad Bottoms', 'Oh that this too Solid Flesh'. The titles of the four following are hidden by the heads of the window-gazers: ['A Decent Story'] , ['Ladies Dress, as it soon will be,'] , ['Two-Penny Whist'], a print, largely obscured, and probably drawn to fill a small space: a man raises a club to smite down Napoleon, whose head, cocked hat, and hands only are visible, 'Palemon & Lavinia'. The lower prints are hidden by the railings. " - British Museum listing

    Dreadful Hot Weather

    A framed and mounted, hand coloured engraving by the Georgian satirist James Gilray in which a corpulent city merchant pauses on the highway next to a milestone on which he has placed his hat and gold tipped walking stick. His waistcoat unbuttoned and holding his horsehair wig in his left hand he pauses to mop his brow all while being stung by insects beneath a burning sun. Though set in fields and near a windmill, the person of the merchant and the milestone likely indicate he is visiting a coutry tavern a short walk from London
