Booklet, stabbed (thread through two holes at (spine) edge), chipped at one corner, sl. grubby wraps (with title), small closed tears on back wrap. A crude production with decent charicatures. It comprises: title and seven caricatures illustrating the comic effects of having a giraffe-style hairdo. See images (should have used flash!). No other copy traced yet(WorldCat etc) but the Brighton Pavilion Collections provided an image of one of the caricatures to the only site which appears to refer to this booklet, and claiming after watercolours by Chalon. (Google Dr Alexandra Loske on George IV and his cherished giraffe at Brighton’s Royal Pavilion). Further illumination welcomed.
