George IV's Coronation

This monumental volume, with text printed in gold leaf and hand-coloured illustrations, was intended to act as a record of the coronation, showing the figures who participated in the procession. The printing technique was developed in secret by Whittaker. The cost however was prohibitive, and only a small number of copies of the book were printed.
