Governor Wall's ghost! [graphic] : by J----s! / J.L.R. inv. & pinxt. ; Js. Gy. ft.

Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,
Description: "A street scene lit by a lamp projecting from a high brick wall: 'Maiden Lane'. A tall man, very thin and pale, walks (right to left), wearing spectacles, a cane in his right hand. His shoulders are thickly sprinkled with powder, cf. BMSat 8190, &c. He terrifies an Irish fishwife, who holds up both arms to avert the spectre, turning away with a terrified stare, saying, "Governor Wall's Ghost! - [the only title] by J .... s!" Her basket of fish falls to the ground. The man is corpse-like, and his clothes seem to hang on a skeleton. The woman is stout and very ragged. Beside her a tunnel penetrates the wall, slanting down from the street-level, under an arch inscribed 'Cyder Cell[ars]', a famous night-resort in Maiden Lane."--British Museum online catalogue.

Cow-pock, or, The wonderful effects of the new inoculation! [graphic] / Js. Gillray del. & ft.

Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,
Description: "A scene in a vaccine institution; poor patients crowd in through a doorway on the left; in the room are those whose treatment has had dire consequences. A comely and frightened young woman sits in an armchair in the centre, the doctor (Jenner, a good portrait, see BMSat 9925) holds her right arm and gashes it with his knife, while a deformed and ragged boy holds up a bucket of 'Vaccine Pock hot from ye Cow'. A charity-schoolboy's oval badge on his sleeve is inscribed 'St Pancras'; from his coat pocket projects a pamphlet: 'Benefits of the Vaccine Process'. From the patients miniature cows sprout or leap. A pregnant woman (right) stands in profile to the right, a cow issues from her mouth, another from below her ragged petticoat. A man dressed as a butcher registers despair at the horns which sprout from his forehead. A labourer with a pitchfork sees a cow bursting from a swelling on his arm while another breaks through his breeches; cows struggle through huge swellings on nose, ear, and cheek. Another patient has only reached the stage of large carbuncles on forehead and chin. The doctor's medicine-chest and a close-stool stand on the left. On the chest are bottles, a syringe, &c, and a tub of 'Opening Mixture'. This a haughty assistant ladles contemptuously into the mouths of the patients as they crowd into the room. On the wall is a picture: a crowd of kneeling worshippers pay homage to the statue of the golden calf. The scene combines fantasy and realism."--British Museum online catalogue.
