George III enjoyed one of the longest reigns (1760–1820) in English history, but his reputation fluctuated throughout the sixty years, and its ups and downs were charted with unprecedented candour and wit by some of the great caricaturists. Here, Kenneth Baker draws on his own extensive experience of high politics as well as his personal collection of caricatures to give us a fascinating vision of how the English saw their king. Many of these amusing, often irreverent images have not been published before and they provide a new dimension to the story of one of the nation’s most well known but least understood monarchs.

Condition: one inch closed tear  and crease to bottom right corner of dustjacket’s front panel, otherwise very good.
