Book is beautiful -- crisp and clean as new with pristine brown boards and equally pristine pages and page edges. Only fault is former owner's name written on front free endpaper for which we will provide a brand new bookplate to use, or not, at buyer's discretion. A very readable account of the history of one of England most famous magazines -- Punch. Nice illustrations augment a text which discusses, in part, the magazine's birth, the Punch Dinner Club and the Punch Club, the origin and appopriation of Punch's jokes, Punch cartoons and cartoonists and their effect; and of course Punch's writers and artists over the decades. 592 pages. Indexed.
