Engraving of William Hogarth’s 1748 painting ‘O the Roast Beef of Old England’ (London, Tate Britain), which he had himself published as a print. The scene is set at the Gate of Calais (after the painting in the Tate Gallery) with a fat monk prodding a large sirloin of beef carried by a cook, on either side are two French soldiers, one of whom spills his bowl of thin soup as he gazes in amazement at the beef; on the left, three market women with crosses hanging from their necks admire a skate in a basket of fish; on the right, two ragged men carry a large pot of soup while another drinks from a bowl, and a Scottish soldier cowers beneath an archway; in the middle distance, to left, Hogarth himself is seen sketching at the moment when a soldier’s hand takes him by the shoulder; beyond, through the gate, is a religious procession.

Letterpress text discussing the line of succession above an etched genealogical chart, which illustrates the line of succession, following the reign of George IV, probably published in response to the death of Princess Charlotte in 1817 and before the birth of Victoria in 1819. However, the text also references “the present Princess of Wales”, but further evidence that this was issued in response to her death is the dark black border around her name.
