Gillray collection at the House of Lords

The House of Lords Library holds one of the best collections of Gillray’s caricatures in the country. Compiled during the nineteenth century by a voracious collector, it incorporates several earlier collections of high quality and the colour on the prints remains remarkably vibrant. I am about to spend a few days going through the collection and incorporating it with my listing of the British Museum’s Gillray collection.
