Punch vol LXXXII. John Tenniel.

Punch vol LXXXII

London: the magazine, 1882. iv, 312p., 10.5x8.5 inch quarto, profuse full, half, and quarter page wood-engraved plates, original strikes of course, lots of Tenniel particularly amongst the fullpage cartoons. His "The Irish Frankenstein" (p.235) is particularly powerful and unfunny, and captioned Parnell. In binding; half morocco pebbled maroon boards, spine gilt with raised bands, marbled endsheets, the brown morocco quite abraded, there are short splits begun at the joints but hinges and signatures are still sound and tight. We note here and there a short marginal tear amongst the leaves, none too awful or on a cherishable image.

See uncredited halfpage illustration on p.126 to see where Edward Gorey may have come from.
