About This Item

London: W. Dickinson, S. Hooper, J. Archer and R. White, 1791. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. London, W. Dickinson, S. Hooper, J. Archer and R. White, 1791. Small folio, xviii, 81, [1] (publisher's advertisements) pages plus 17 full-page engravings. Early half calf and marbled papered boards; leather worn at the extremities, with the front hinge cracked (but still firm); plates foxed and offset, with some text leaves foxed; overall a very good copy. The ownership signature 'Normanton' and an (earlier) armorial bookplate with the name scratched out are on the front pastedown. William Henry Bunbury (1750-1811), amateur artist and caricaturist; his designs 'must be admitted to be inferior in humour to Rowlandson's and in satire to Gillray's. Nevertheless, they are not without a good deal of grotesque drollery of the rough-and-ready kind in vogue' at the time (DNB).
