"...If a theatrical manager wants to do a play about the '60's or '70's the first thing he does is to look up the old Punch volumes. There he sees exactly how our fathers spoke, and dressed, and looked. If the Cochran, or the Ziegfeld, of 2000 A.D. wants to do a play about 1952 A.D. I do not think he will get much help from the most popular comic artists of today. He will probably decide that the less said about his subhuman ancestors the better. But the main purpose of a comic artist, without doubt, is to be comic; and "If I do that," he may well say, "what are you complaining about?" Hastily, I agree, I accept, I withdraw. It was only an old chap maundering to himself. I salute this work and wish it well; and on behalf of Punch and his merry men may I proclaim their thanks for the compliment that America has paid them in supposing that Britain can be funny too." (from foreword by A. P. Herbert)
