"A fierce monster in quasi-oriental dress, with webbed wings, hoofs, and tail, strides, across clouds, from a dome among minarets, inscribed 'Turkey', to the dome of St. Paul's in 'London'. He holds up in his left hand a fool's bauble, in the right a paper: 'Plan for turning St Pauls to a Bazaar'. Clouds of smoke inscribed 'Bazaar' issue from his mouth and spread all round him, from which rays descend on London inscribed 'Bazaar' in large letters. His turban is inscribed 'Bazaar'. In his sash are two papers: 'Destruction to Poor Shopkeep . . .' and 'List of Places Intended for Bazaar House of Lords, House of Commons, Carlton House, St Jame's, the Monument, British Meseum [sic], Bullocks Meseum [see British Museum Satires No. 12702], Drury Lane & Covent Garden Theatres &c &c &c.' At the base of the Monument, which he bestrides, is a building inscribed 'Excambrean Baza . .' Below the design: 'This Monster who is a Native of Turkey has lately made his appearance in London & such is his power that by first appearing in Soho he got Acquainted with Mr Tr-t-r sinse which he has Spread Destruction through all the best houses in Town to the Great anoyance of all poor Shop-keepers'."--British Museum online catalogue.
