While Cruikshank credits George Humphrey (G. H. invt.) with suggesting this caricature of Napoleon, as the devil incarnate, exiled on the island of Saint Helena in the South Atlantic Ocean, the print is an adaptation of James Gillray's 1782 etching, "Gloria Mundi, or--the Devil addressing the Sun," published by Hannah Humphrey.
