Descripción

Broadside, oblong folio, engraved, printed one side on good quality paper. A Satire in reference to the King of Prussia's peremptory demands of the Empress-Queen of Germany and Hungary , whether her preparations of war on the frontiers of Silesia were against him, and what were her intentions. The illustration shows The King of Prussia standing as sentinel at the gates of a Fortress, whilst in a coach driven by the French King sits the Empress-Queen, with Count Bruhl riding postillion. In the foreground is a globe of the World with a French Cock breathing fire at Germany whilst on the other side is America in Flames. The motive behind this satire being published in London was to expose the French motive which was to alarm George II for the safety of his Hanoverian domains, and divert his attention from his American Provinces, which France was endeavouring to secure. BM. No 3471. Exceedingly rare. N° de ref. de la librería 16010
