Cruikshank Comicalities

These 1876 cartoons came from the Leisure Hour, published in December of 1876. They originated in George Cruikshank's Scraps and Sketches, folios published by the artist and sold by James Robins and Company of London in 1828, 1829, 1831 and 1832.

Some similar to these were pirated for "The Gallery of 140 Comicalities," published by Bell's Life in London in 1828, which understandably offended the artist. Photographs of the 1832 Scraps and Sketches HERE.
