Description
While Cruikshank credits George Humphrey (G. H. ivt) with the idea or design, this caricature of allied generals shoveling Napoleon into a baker's oven derives from James Gillray's 1806 print, "Tiddy-Doll, the Great French Gingerbread-Baker, Drawing out a new batch of Kings," also published by Hannah Humphrey. George Humphrey was Hannah's nephew and later successor in publishing.
