The Busy Body, or Men and Manners. (4 Volumes) - Hedgehog, Humphrey [pseud. for - 1816. [1279549]
J. Johnston 1816-1818, London - Scarce full run of satirical periodical from Regency England, with 25 Gillray hand-colored plates. 8vo. 20 by 13 cm. Text a mix of verse, mock letters, articles, apercus. Some of the pieces come off as more straightforward, such as perhaps the theatre reviews, but mostly the pieces are unabashedly tongue-in-cheek. Plush full brown morocco, with gilt ruled borders, raised bands, gilt ornamentation within spine compartments and gilt lettering. Offsetting, and some age toning. Regardless, a beautiful set. [Attributes: First Edition]
