George IV : A Life in Caricature, Hardback Book

George IV : A Life in Caricature Hardback


This book presents over 200 cartoons lampooning the larger-than-life King George IV (r.1821-1830), combined with a text (in 19 chapters) by Kenneth Baker, who brings his own extensive political experience to his discussion of George.

Baker sets George in the context of his personal and political life, and reveals his passion for collecting works of art and his interest in architecture and design.

A final chapter discusses George's relations with the press.
