French invasion, or, Buonaparté landing in Great-Britain [graphic].

Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,
Description: "A burlesqued battle-piece. A French army on the sea-shore flees in wild confusion from the fire of a group of English soldiers with a Union flag and two cannon on a low sandy cliff (right). Clouds of smoke suggest an intense cannonade from invisible British troops. In the centre of the French fugitives is Napoleon spurring a white horse, his sabre flying into the air from his outstretched right hand. Two other officers are mounted, one hurls away a banner with skull and cross-bones; the rest are infantry. Corpses, decollated heads, weapons, &c, lie on the ground, trampled on by fugitives. On the horizon are men-of-war; in the sea, ships boats in advance or retreat. The British are realistically drawn, the French are burlesqued. The former wear shakos, their first appearance in these prints."--British Museum online catalogue.

Armed-heroes [graphic] : vide, military appearances at St. Stephens & at St. Cloud's on [the] day of defiance / Js. Gillray inv. & f.

Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,
Description: "Addington and Napoleon face each other defiantly across a narrow channel. Addington, the nearer, is the larger, and much the taller. He wears regimentals, cocked hat, and shapeless boots; he stands with arms akimbo, sabre in his hand; from each pocket projects a medicine-bottle, one labelled 'Composing Draft', the other 'Stimulating Draft'. He looks at Napoleon with a chop-fallen stare, saying, "who's afraid? damme? - \ O Lord. O Lord - what a Firey Fellow he is! \ - Who's afraid? damme? \ O dear! what will become of ye Roast Beef? \ damme! who's afraid? \ O dear! O dear." (The lines are alternately in large and tiny letters to distinguish between words spoken aloud and to himself.) He straddles across a steaming sirloin on a dish inscribed: 'O the Roast Beef of Old England'. Napoleon, who straddles even more widely, holds the hilt of his sabre; his head is large, his cocked hat grotesquely huge. He glares at the beef, saying, "Ah! ha, sacrè dieu! vat do I see yonder? \ Dat look so invitinly Red & de Vite? - \ Oh by Gar! I see 'tis de Roast Beef of Londres \ Vich I vill chop up, at von letel bite!" (Cf. BMSat 5790.) Behind Addington is the front bench in the House of Commons. Hawkesbury, thin, stooping, and melancholy, his hands on his hips, his arms curiously twisted, says: "Ah who's afraid now of Marching to Paris? ah who's afraid now." Behind Addington's seat stand two dim figures, waving their hats; they say: "who's afraid! Brother Bragg" and "who's afraid Brother Hely" ..."--British Museum online catalogue.
