This was an impulse purchase from the British Museum shop apparently about a year ago, as it was issued to mark the 300th anniversary of the 1707 Act of Union. It's slim and of course the focus is on the pictures. As such, there's only a little written content. The principal artist featuring is Richard Newton, with contributions from various others, including Gillray and Hogarth. Interestingly, the caricatures of the English (here as elsewhere, often synonymous with "British") are largely by French artists, and those by English artists, though there is an element of self-deprecation, are quite often focused equally on French stereotypes.
A favourite from each section under the cuts:
