A satirical etching of the St. George's Volunteers established in response to the growing threat of French invasion.

The etching depicts three rather dishevelled men with fixed bayonets charging down not the French, but ladies who are clearly fleeing in terror.

The satire continues in the title 'St. George's Volunteers Charging Down Bond Street, after clearing the ring in Hyde Park, & storming the Dunghill at Marybone'. An insight into growing hysteria of the time perhaps?

An original hand coloured etching published by H Humphrey March 1797  retaining good colour and in excellent condition with gilt frame and green mount. 

A further James Gillray hand coloured print 'The Life Of William Cobbett' is also available (see our other listing).

H: 40.5cm (etching where visible 25.5cm)

W: 50cm ( etching where visible 36.5cm)

D: 2cm (frame depth)
