Commentary: Cobbett's Gridiron (1822) consists of extracts
from Cobbett's writings selected to discredit him. This six-penny pamphlet
was one of the many anti-Cobbett publications of the time, and was much
copied by other opponents. Interestingly, the gridiron became a symbol
which appeared at the head of some copies of Cobbett's own Political
Register as late as 1835.
