Product Description

A Satire on Napoleon making Kings.. The illustration is set in a farmhouse kitchen with a smocked farmer sitting opposite his wife at the table. She is saying “Why this Bonny-part be making Kings every-day- I should not wonder if thee wast in France, if he made a King of thee John – what wouldst thee do if thee wast a King”, to which he responds “Do! Why I’d swing on a gate and eat fat Bacon all day long” BM. No. 10903
