Gloria mundi, or, The Devil addressing the sun / The V- Committee framing a report

Charles James Fox, with the feet and tail of a fox, his empty pockets turned out, and with cow horns protruding through his hat, stands on an E.O. (gaming) table placed on the North Pole. Quoting Satan’s speech from Paradise Lost, he looks to the upper right where the sun is depicted as Lord Shelburne. Refers to Fox’s gambling habit and his July 1782 resignation after Shelburne’s appointment as First Lord of the Treasury.
