Repair to blank reverse, which carries a strip of cloth from previous mount. Text and image clear and entire. Image roughly 190 x 120 cm. The letterpress consists of a thirteen-line 'Parody of [Napoleon's] assumed Titles', ending '[.] the sanguinary Coxcomb, Assassin, and Incendiary.to | MAKE PEACE WITH!!!' There follows a six-line explanation, beginning 'This Hieroglyphic Portrait of the DESTROYER is faithfully copied from a German Print, [BM 12177] with the Parody of his assumed Titles. The Hat of the Destroyer represents a discomfited French Eagle, maimed and crouching, after his Conflict with the Eagles of the North. His Visage is composed of the Carcases of the Victims of his Folly and Ambition, [.]'.
