WIT'H the accefiion of George II., the tafte for political caricatures 
increafed greatly, and they had become alrnofi a necellity of focial 
life. At this time, too, a diitinct Englilh fchool of political caricature had 
been efiablithed, and the print-fellers became more numerous, and took 
a higher pofition in the commerce of literature and art. Among the 
earlieft of thefe printfellers the name of Bowles Hands efpecially con- 
fpicuous. Hogarth's burlefque on the Beggar's Opera, publiihed in 1728, 
was " printed for John Bowles, at the Black Horfe, in Cornhill." Some 
copies of"King Henry the Eighth and Anna Bullen," engraved by the fame 
great artiii in the following year, bear the imprint of John Bowles; and 
others were " printed for Robert Wilkinfon, Cornhill, Carington Bowles, 
in St. Paul's Church Yard, and R. Sayer, in Fleet Street." Hogarth's 
" Humours of Southwark Fair " was alfo publifhed, in 1733, by Carington 
and John Bowles. This Carington Bowles was, perhaps, dead in 1755, 
for in that year the caricature entitled "Britifh Refentment " bears the 
imprint, "Printed for T. Bowles, in St. Paul's Church Yard, and Jno. 
Bowles 8: Son, in Cornhill." John Bowles appears to have been the 
brother of the tirlt Carington Bowles in St. Paul's Churchyard, and a fon 
named Carington fucceeded to that buiinefs, which, under him and l'1lS 
fon Carington, and then as the efiablifhment of Bowles and Carver, has 
continued to exift within the memory of the prefent generation. Another 
very celebrated printfhop was ettabliihed in Fleet Street by Thomas 
Overton,
