Product Description

A Satire on Robert Peel who was known as the ñcadî or ñrat-catcherî. In the illustration, which again is quite different to the Heath version, Peel is shown wearing a much-patched coat, and is holding in his left hand a cage within which is a rat. The only version of this image we can find is once again as one of the four figures in the composite print. B.M. 15746.
