Traces of old folds as issued, neat marginal repair. £380 Satire on the marriage of Princess Charlotte and Prince Leopold: he is in rags on the left, greeted as he lands by John Bull, with Vansittart and the Prince Regent looking on doubtfully, while the Princess is on the right looking more enthusiastic; on the balcony Queen Charlotte expresses her delight at having another German prince in the family.
