James Gillray Information.
A selection of Gillray's works appeared in James Gillray: The Caricatures printed between 1818 and the mid-1820s and published by John Miller, Bridge Street and W. Blackwood, Edinburgh. Nine parts were released and if on the better paper is indistinguishable from the McLean so all will be labelled as McLean if on quality rag paper
The next edition was Thomas McLean's, which was published with a key, in 1830 and is in my mind the best posthumous edition being on superb paper with margins and less tendency to self destruct through time. Again form uncut / unrestored plates
In 1851 Henry George Bohn put out an edition, from the original plates in a handsome elephant folio, with coarser sketches—commonly known as the "Suppressed Plates"—being published in a separate volume. For this edition Thomas Wright and Robert Harding Evans wrote a commentary, a history of the times embraced by the caricatures. Many copies of the Bohn Edition have been broken up into individual sheets and passed off as originals (the number in many was removed chemically). Although the two volumes of the Bohn Edition are often represented as being a complete collection of Gillray's works, this is not the case: for example, 'Doublûres of Characters' is not included in either volume. This is most likely because this print was not published by Hannah Humphrey, but by John Wright for the Anti-Jacobin Review and Magazine Many of the plates appear to have not been recut as the quality can be very patchy showing a worn plate.
The next edition, entitled 'The Works of James Gillray, the Caricaturist: with the Story of his Life and Times' (Chatto & Windus, 1874), was the work of Thomas Wright, and introduced Gillray to larger public. This edition, which is complete in one volume, contains two portraits of Gillray, and upwards of 400 illustrations.The majority of the plates for sale are from; :- Historical and Descriptive Account of the Caricatures of James Gillray Comprising a Political and Humorous History of the Latter Part of the Reign of George the Third by Thomas Wright and R. H. Evans London: Henry G. Bohn, 1851 Between 1845 and 1851, Henry Bohn published editions of Gillray's works from Gillray's original plates. Over 600 numbered plates were printed back-to-back in two giant atlas folio volumes. . .a good tint ie they date from 1845/51. The third volume was the 'suppressed or gentleman's prints not for ladies viewing etc and as such much scarcer .. . all where possible with a historical description/translation
