Burke's Peerage entertaining collection of cartoons published over the last 250 years, frequently lending a critical view of events. Beginning with William Hogarth's eighteenth-century depiction of the last Lord to be hanged for treason, they cover amongst other things the activities of the House of Lords and its reform, and many major personalities involved in political life, from the Earl of Beaconsfield (Disraeli) to Asquith, Lloyd George, the Earl of Stockton (Macmillan), Lord Home and Baroness Thatcher.
