Punch cures the gout, the colic, and the 'tisick [graphic].

Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,
Description: "Three revellers sit at a small round table on which is a large punch-bowl, each holding a full glass. A fat man in an arm-chair (right), full-face, each gouty bandaged leg supported on a stool, his left hand bandaged, and wearing a dressing-gown, with jovially contorted features, declaims the first part of the title. His neighbour, a young woman with her hand clasping her waist, declaims the second part. A wretched invalid (left), with stick-like limbs, looking on the verge of the grave, repeats the last part. The words, inscribed in scrolls, form the only title. They are the words of an old catch which continues: 'And is by all agreed the very best of physic' A patterned carpet, and cast shadows on a plain wall, complete the design."--British Museum online catalogue.

Hero of the Nile [graphic] / Js. Gillray del. & fect.

Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,
Description: "Nelson stands directed slightly to the left, wearing a peer's robe over his uniform and the jewel and star of the Bath. In his cocked hat is the diamond aigrette (chelengk, or plume of triumph) presented to him by the Sultan, and now in the Maritime Museum, Greenwich. His left hand rests on the hilt of a cutlass, 'L'Epee de l'Amiral de la Grande Nation'. He stands on a boarded floor (or deck) with a background of clouds. In a vignette beneath the design is an adaptation of the augmentation of arms granted to him in November when he was created Baron Nelson of the Nile and Burnham-Thorpe with a pension of £2,000 a year. The supporters (granted after St. Vincent) are: dexter, a sailor (unarmed instead of armed) holding up a palm (added 1798), and sinister, a lion also holding up a palm (added 1798) and with a tricolour flag in its teeth. Both are burlesqued. Below the (correct) disabled ship, palm-tree, and ruinous battery, Gillray has added, in place of the correct arms, a full purse with a scroll: '£2000 pr Ann'. The motto ('Palmam qui meruit ferat') and crest, a naval crown with the chelengk, are correct."--British Museum online catalogue.
