Points of Humour

A selection of George Cruikshanks images from Points of Humour published by J. Robins in 2 parts in one volume, Mornings at Bow Street: a selection of the most humorous and entertaining reports which have appeared in the "Morning Herald," by J. Wight, London: George Routledge, 1824, and German Popular Stories by George Cruikshank, London: C. Baldwyn, Newgate Street, 1823. Here's one from the 19th century swipe-file: compare Cruikshank's cat below with A. B. Frost's famous comic strip “Our Cat Eats Rat Poison” HERE.
