English 19th century caricature by William Heath.
DESCRIPTION

Details

From 1827-9 Heath used the pseudonym Paul Pry (from the name of a character in a comedy of 1825 by John Poole, that became a tag used for any very inquisitive person) with the emblem of a small man holding a walking stick in a lower corner of his plates; this figure was soon copied by other caricaturists (eg Sharpshooter, q.v.), and so from 1828 Heath began to sign his plates with his full name. Published regularly by Thomas McLean (1788 - 1875).
