Pages one and two of four, on a single sheet of issue twelve of 'The Looking Glass', later called the 'McLean's Monthly Sheet of Caricatures'. 'The Looking Glass', published by Thomas McLean, was the first caricature magazine to appear in London - i.e., no text other than captions, as against monthly written magazines with satirical plates. With four pages of sketches, it appeared monthly from 1 January 1830, continuing to 1836. The first seven issues were etched by William Heath; thereafter it was lithographed in the HB manner by R. Seymour.
