Explanation of the arms of Napoleon Bonaparte ... [graphic].

Author: Cruikshank, George, 1792-1878,
Description: "An altered version (like British Museum Satires No. 12205) of British Museum Satires No. 11057, from the original plate. ... The shield, sinister supporter, crest and motto are the same, but the dexter supporter is altered, apparently by Rowlandson, from 'The French Devil' (Talleyrand, now a supporter of Louis XVIII) to Death, a skeleton holding up an hour-glass. This has necessitated the re-drawing of the Gallic cock at his feet, but it pecks at a crucifix as before. The (printed) text is as before (allusions to Jaffa, d'Enghien, &c.) except for the addition to the title and the descriptions of the supporters: '. . . The Gallic Cock, vainly pecking the crucifix, is symbolic of the Corsican's impiety.' The description of 'The Corsican Devil' is altered to 'Satan, wearing an Iron Crown,... cutting down the Cap of Liberty, and accompanied by the Serpent and Hyaena, the attributes of the Corsican Emperor's wily and sanguinary reign'. The inscriptions (now obsolete) hanging from the mouth of the hyena are altered to: 'Cambaceres', 'Davoust', 'Augereau', 'Sebastiani', 'Vandamme', 'Savory'."--British Museum online catalogue.

Tyrant of the continent is fallen, Europe is free, England rejoices [graphic].

Author: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827,
Description: "Napoleon (left) looks up terrified at an arm holding a sword emerging from clouds (right), with the words: "Thou'rt doom'd to Pain, at which the Damn'd will tremble | And take their own for Joys--." The sword has a jagged blade, intended to symbolize flames. He wears plain uniform with epaulets; his small bicorne is falling off. On the right, beneath the avenging arm, is Napoleon's chair of state, overturned; beside it are heaped a large fringed canopy or curtain, a spiky crown (cf. British Museum Satires No. 12252), and sceptre. From behind the folds of the curtain the Devil emerges, winged and ferocious; he grasps Napoleon's leg. Beside Napoleon is a pile of crowns and gold plate. There are heavy clouds behind Napoleon and on the right, above and below the arm and sword."--British Museum online catalogue.

Ehrefort' ['loss of honour' punningly combined with Erfurt, scene of Napoleon's triumph in 1808, and his headquarters before Leipzig; cf. British Museum Satires No. 12248] is on a red ribbon. The web is larger in proportion to the coat, the spider much larger in proportion to the web. On the collar are waves of the sea, with an inconspicuous ship.
