GEORGIAN ENGRAVED SHEET GAME - Royal Game of British Sovereigns. Exhibiting the most remarkable events in each reign from Egbert to Geo. III. Published by J. & E. Wallis, 42 Skinner Street, London and J. Wallis Junr., Marine Library, Sidmouth. 1820.

Original engraved sectional sheet game, circa 61 x 46cm, mounted on original linen, folded and housed in the original buff card slipcase with onlaid engraved and handcoloured pictorial label to one side; a striking and decorative Georgian table, or chase, game which is composed of 53 pictorial compartments surrounding the elaborately engraved title and printed rules of the game; without the additional explanatory rules booklet, as is frequently the case; both game and slipcase in uncommonly fresh condition with some slight toning, dusting, and a few marks, and minor and small stains to the folds on the reverse side, the slipcase in unusually fresh condition; scarce in this condition.
Third edition, with No 53, described in the rules as "1820. Buonaparte on board the Bellerophon". Later editions of the book of rules have 3 spaces added: 54. George IV. Plans of London Improvements submitted to the King; 55 William IV. Negro Slavery abolished throughout th eBritish Dominions; 56 Victorial. May her reign be long and happy. The game would have required a teetotum and counters, but these were not supplied by the publisher.
