click here to view a large version in a separate window

A rare separately issued broadsheet satirising Cardinal Fleury, Louis XV of France, European heads of state and politicians at the time of the War of the Austrian Succession and the election of Charles VII as Holy Roman Emperor. A map of Bohemia, Bavaria and Hungary is shown laid out on a table around which numerous national European and Turkish figures pose, preen and comment on the proposed partition, all prior to the march on Prague. Below the scene, which measures approx. 24 X 35 cms, are columns of satirical verse, in both French and German, describing the situation. Unusually, given that there is no English text explanation, this sheet was published in London, by T.Cooper, as well as in Amsterdam.
