About this Item

First Edition with Crowquill illustrattions. Pages 361 pp. + 18 pp. publisher's ads.8vo. Illustrated brown publisher's cloth with gilt illustrations on front cover and spine. Covers embossed in the blind. A.e.g. First Edition with Crowquill illustrattions. Illiustrated with wood engravings. Cushing, I, 429430. Concise Dict. Natl. Biog. The epic comic poem by Combe, originally made famous by the illustrations by Thomas Rowlandson, here redone by the original publisher with "more modern" Crowquill illustrations. The original text followed the course of the illustrations, much as Robert Seymour had considered in 1836 for "the Pickwick Papers," which he had begun with the very young Charles Dickens. Crowquill(18051872) was a prolific contemporary of George Cruikshank and many of his illustrations appear in "Punch," "Illustrated London News," Bentley's Miscellany and in independent publications as well as in reinterpretations of Dickens, Albert Smith and other authors. In the period 18271844, he often illustrated the written works of his brother Charles Robert Forrester (18031850), both aspects under the nameof "Alfred Crowquill." Later Alfred became both author and illustrator. Professionally rebacked with original spine laid down. Wear at corners. Else Very Good+. Bookseller Inventory # 9053
