John Bull (Symbolic character) Caricatures and cartoons.
Author: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827,
Description: "The comet has the profile head of Napoleon wearng a plumed bicorne; it rushes up from the left. towards the sun, the profile head of George III, much irradiated. John Bull, a carbuncled 'cit', stoops low to look through a telescope on a tripod pointing towards the comet. Napoleon looks up at the King, who gazes fixedly above his head. He has ascended from a small piece of land rising from the narrow Channel separating it from John's wider fragment. Up this a frog clambers. On the open sea ships are strung out along the horizon. John says: "Aye - Aye - Master Comet - you may attempt your Periheliums - or your Devil heliums for what I care but take the word of an Old Man you'll never reach the Sun depend upon it"."--British Museum online catalogue, description of variant state.

More miseries, or, The bottom of Mr. Figg's old whiskey broke through [graphic].

Author: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827,
Description: "Inscription in the upper right. corner: 'A Serio Comic Scene that befel the Grocers Wife at Norwich Or Mrs Figgs bottom exposed owing to the bottom of Mr Figgs Whiskey breaking through.' The two-wheeled gig has stopped at the door of an old-fashioned grocer's shop. A plump woman stands on the ground behind the shafts, naked between waist and stockings, the hole in the floor of the gig having scraped up her petticoats. A scene of violent action: one man holds the head of the restive horse. Men (l.) rush to look at the unfortunate woman who screams with upraised arms, as does her husband who stands with his back to his shop. A woman furiously clutches the hair of a too-eager spectator (r.); a barking dog leaps towards Mrs. Figg. Over the shop-door hangs a conical sign: 'Old Sugar loaf.' A board over the door is inscribed 'Grocery Sweetmeats Hams Tongues Starch Plumbs Figs Vermicelli Tripe Barley Pickles Mustard Soap Hogs Puddings &c Sold here by Peter Figg.' In a bow window are many jars, &c, two inscribed 'Mustard' and 'Virgin Honey'. Above it are two large pot-plants. An agitated woman screams from a casement window over the door. On the house is a placard: 'Cattle Life Insurance Cow Lane Smithfield.'."--British Museum online catalogue.
