JOHN LEECH'S PICTURES OF LIFE AND CHARACTER: from the Collection of "Mr. Punch" 1842-64 - all 3 Vols

£149.00

Product description

3 volume set, undated, believed to be published between 1865-1880, reflecting Punch cartoons 1842-1864. Overall condition Very Good / Good. All volumes with red cloth boards, bevelled, black and gilt titling to front covers and spine. Covers, with gilt cartoon to front, are essentially clean, with minor spots and markings, slight edgewear, and slight fraying and bumping to corners. Spine coverings are more faded, with fraying to top and base; minor crack in Vol 2. Black endpapers show wear at the page gutter, but primarily, the bindings remain in good order. 
Bright gilt blocks are clean, with only minimal scuffs. There is occasional foxing to endpapers and some pages, but in essence, the leaves are clean, and John Leech's characterful engraved cartoons of the period (1842-1864) remain vibrant. Personal library plates are adhered to FFEPs of all 3 volumes.
Overall, this is a delightful set.

Vol I: 281pp. Vol II: 276pp. Vol III:268pp. Total net weight 5.57kgs.

John Leech was a British caricaturist and illustrator, being best known for his work on Punch, a humorous magazine for a broad middle-class audience, combining verbal and graphic political satire with light social comedy.
