Abstract

James Gillray (1757-1815) was the originator of the modern political cartoon. He lived above the print shop in London that distributed his work. He favoured social and ideological comment; specialising in mixing the grand with the gross. Here, he is referring to the fact that the gout was supposed to be an affliction of the rich, who overindulged in food and drink (it is not).
