JOHN LEECH'S PICTURES OF LIFE AND CHARACTER From the Collection of "Mr. Punch"
London, Bradbury, Agnew, & Co. 1886 and 1887, hb. Ill.: black-&-white illustrations. Very large 4to, pp.284,276,268 Taken from issues of "Punch" magazine published between 1842 to 1864.
¶ The complete set of three volumes, bound as one in black three-quarter leather over greyish cloth. This is not a recent re-bind, but it is not contemporary: it appears to have been done about 50 years ago, and competently done at that, with the spine in compartments, showing five blind-stamped florettes and gilt lettering. The binding is still in quite good condition, showing only moderate wear. The contents are tightly-bound and in very good condition with only the odd bit of marginal smudging. This is a large, heavy, book and it might be best to enquire, first, as to costs and options to ship.
