Product Description

The Coronation Dinner of King George IV. Following the trial of his wife Queen Caroline the previous year, she was totally excluded both from the Coronation and the subsequent Coronation Dinner. She died two months after the Coronation. An early owner has erroneously dated this in ink as ñ1761î, which was of course the Coronation date of George III.
