- Curator's comments
- Despite its political content, the pamphlet is not satirical and as not illustrated. Therefore it is not included in M. Dorothy George's ‘Catalogue of Political and Personal Satires in the British Museum.’
Bound as part of 'Political Tracts Volume 7.' Number 7 of 10 volumes of political pamphlets, published circa 1819- 1822. Volume 7 contains slightly earlier works dating back to 1815.
The introduction presents a negative view of Caroline's conduct in contrast to the more positive representations which can be seen in 'Political Tracts' Volumes 2 and 3. For further negative representations of Queen Caroline, see 'Political Tracts' Volume 6.
