Publisher's pictorial cloth, 20 blue and 6 violet; 1 of the blue (1950) a little foxed, lower headband cracked, bindings generally a little grubby, the last 6 binding a little faded on spines. * Punch, or the London Charivari was a British weekly magazine of humour and satire established in 1841 by Henry Mayhew and engraver Ebenezer Landells. Historically, it was most influential in the 1840s and 50s, when it helped to coin the term "cartoon" in its modern sense as a humorous illustration. It became a British institution, but after the 1940s, when its circulation peaked, it went into a long decline, finally closing in 1992.
It was subtitled The London Charivari in homage to Charles Philipon's earlier French satirical humour magazine Le Charivari..
