262pp. Quarto [28 cm] 3/4 blue leather with marbled paper over boards, raised bands, and gilt stamped titles and decorative borders on the spine. Very good. The covers are mildly rubbed, and the spine is very slightly sunned. The underlying boards are exposed occasionally along the edges, and the corners of the covers are gently bumped. There is a previous owner's bookplate on the front pastedown. The pages are age-toned and have sporadic light foxing.
The long-running serialized British magazine, Punch, characterized by its humor, satire, and cartoons, began publication in 1841.
