Four charming and amusing cartoons from Punch's golden age. All four are executed in a similar style, but the identity of the cartoonist or cartoonists is unknown.

No Punch cartoonist with these initials is apparent.) ONE: Captioned: 'Another Brilliant Idea, Only Brillianter!' 21 x 13.5cm.

£750.00

Two pages, bifolium, 4to, fold marks and minor faint staining, good condition. An earlier draft of the satirical piece printed first in "Comic Miscellanies" (1840)(no other publication listed by LION, though one has to suspect an earlier periodical publication). Comparison with samples of Horatio's and James's hands (the latter is poorly represented by a hasty note in the BL collections) lead to my conclusion that Horatio wrote out this version in his neat hand with its flourishing capitals.
