View of Bayonne, taken from the sand hills on the left of the Adour, when occupied by the British forces on the 12 of March 1814, by Lieutenant George B. Willis, of the Royal Artillery. Dedicated with permission to the Rt. Hon. Earl Mulgrave, Master General of the Ordnance, &c. &c. &c. This print is intended to commemorate the illustrious return of Field Marshal the Duke of Wellington, and that proud period, when after a glorious career of victory, and the deliverance of Spain and Portugal by British valour and perseverance, the English standard was planted before the walls of Bayonne, and the legitimate sovereign of France recalled to add his seal to the general peace of Europe!
On his return from the Peninsular campaign, Wellington first took his seat in the House of Lords and was officially welcomed by the Queen at Buckingham House on 28 June, four days after the publication of this tribute by Edward Orme.

Memoirs of the Life of Lord Lovat.
First edition of the life of Lord Lovat, published before his trial. A life-long Jacobite conspirator, Simon Fraser, Lord Lovat (1667/8–1747), was closely involved in the uprisings of 1689, 1715, 1719, and 1745. Upon his capture in 1746, he was brought to London and tried before the House of Lords, where he was found guilty and sentenced to death; his execution in 1747 was the last public beheading in the United Kingdom.
