Surrender of Ulm, or, Buonapartè & Genl. Mack coming to a right understanding [graphic] : intended as a specimen of French victories, i.e., conquering without bloodshed!!! / Js. Gillray inv. & f.

Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,
Description: "Mack (left), followed by his generals, prostrates himself, grovelling before three French Grenadiers (right), each holding a large sack inscribed '20 Million Livres'. Mack throws down his sword and two keys labelled 'Keys of Ulm'; beside him are a standard with the Habsburg eagle, a bundle of muskets, and a paper: 'Articles to be deliver 'd up - I. Field Marshall 8 - Generals in Chief 7 - Lieutn Generals 36 Thousand Soldiers - 80 Pieces of Cannon - 50 Stand of Colours 100000 Pounds of Powder 4000 Cannon Ball.' Napoleon, very small, is perched on a large drum on which is an imperial crown and the letter 'N'. He points with his sabre to Mack, with the left hand to his three Grenadiers, saying, "There's your Price! There's Ten Millions! - Twenty!! - it is not in my Army alone, that my rescources of Conquering consists!! - I hate Victory obtain'd by effusion of Blood!" Mack answers, his eyes on a money-bag, " - and so do I too! - what signifies Fighting when we can settle it in a Safer way!!!" His pigtail flies upwards, showing the violence of his obeisance; so do those of the generals who follow him. Behind them are the towers of a high fortress bristling with guns; their seeming impregnability points the satire. Behind Napoleon and facing the spectator are serried ranks of French grenadiers standing at attention; they have tricolour flags inscribed: 'Vive I'Empereur Napoleon'; 'Vive Buonaparte'; 'la Victoire ou la Mort'."--British Museum online catalogue.

Death of Admiral-Lord-Nelson in the moment of victory! [graphic] / Js. Gillray invt. & fect.

Britannia (Symbolic character) Caricatures and cartoons.
Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,
Description: "An allegorical design combined with a quasi-realistic scene on the deck of the 'Victory'. The dying Nelson, in half-reclining position on a cannon, is supported by Britannia and by Captain Hardy, who stanches his wound. A young sailor kneels at his feet, supporting the hand from which Nelson's sword drops; he holds up the folds of the tattered tricolour flag which another sailor, with a gesture of astonishment and grief, has brought to Nelson. The flag (from the French flag-ship, the 'Bucentaure') is inscribed 'Vive l'Emp[ereur des] Francois'. On the deck, beside Nelson, his telescope lies across a paper: 'Bay of Trafalgar'. Britannia, with trident, shield, and a small branch of olive, kneels on the cannon, covering her eyes with her left hand. Poised on a cloud of smoke behind Britannia stands Fame, blowing his trumpet and holding up a pen with which he has just written in large letters on a swirling cloud the word 'Immortality'. The flag of the 'Victory', torn by shot, is on the extreme left; beside it three marines fire their muskets with deadly effect at the men in the mizen-top of the adjacent French ship, the 'Redoubtable' (who were responsible for the fatal shot). On the right sailors fire a cannon. A sailor climbs the rigging, waving his hat. ..."--British Museum online catalogue.
