About this Item: London. Tilt & Bogue. Printed by Bradbury and Evans. 1841] 32 pp. + 2 pp. out of sequence + 4 pp. ads at front, 4 pp. ads at rear and a pink inserted ad for Hutton's Brandy at rear. Conforms to Cohn 190. Numerous comic illustrations by George Cruikshank. The classic Omnibus cover was engraved by George's nephew Percy Cruikshank. 8vo. Illustrated paper wraps with cover illustration of a crowded omnibus by Cruikshank. Sewn. First Edition. A single issue, the eighth (of 9), of George Cruikshank's Omnibus, pp. 233264 + a 2 pp. cancel leaf from previous part No. VII , (pp. 199200). In 1841, Cruikshank became increasingly disenchanted with the publisher Bentley while working with Harrison Ainsworth illustrating his novels. Despite financial woes and the illness of his wife, Cruikshank separated from Bentley and became attached to secondary publishers like Tilt and Bogue. In May, 1841, he started Omnibus as his personal outlet. Laman Blanchard was the editor and Ainsworth the subeditor. Other authors include Merle, Marryat, Thackeray and "Bowman Tiller." It has the characteristic comic cover of the rear of a crowded omnibus pulling away. George drew the image and it was engraved by his nephew Percy Cruikshank, although George was angry with him for calling himself "Cruikshank the Younger." Inside are articles in a comic vein includingthe miscellany entitled "Omnibus Chat." There is a witty article on Mrs. Toddles and a poem by Thackeray (Titmarsh). The lead article in this issue is on the fire at the Tower of London, with accomanying poem by Blanchard and a glowing review of the singer Adelaide Kemble [Bone], with full page portrait of her (not by Cruikshank) in the operatic role of Norma. .The Omnibus was issued monthly for the rest of 1841 but lost money steadily. Having lost £6 on the second Issue, No. II, despite selling 6500 copies, in 1842 , after only 9 issues, Cruikshank suspended The Omnibus, considering issuing it as an annual. This never happened, as he was consumed by debt, family problems and heavy drinking. Single issues of the Omnibus are quite uncommon. Lacks rear cover and half of spine.Soiling. Foxing of some illlustrations. Tissue guards retained. Else, Very Good. Patten, Cruikshank, Vol. 2, especially pp. 175183. Cohn 190. Seller Inventory # 9707
