The Tour of Doctor Syntax Through London
J. Johnston, London 1820 - .or the Pleasures and Miseries of the Metropolis. A Poem. Third Edition, London, J. Johnston, 1820. Large 8ยบ (254 x 155 mm.), untimmed as issued in original drab boards, 20C. rebacking in purple cloth with new paper label, original endpapers retained, inner hinges reinforced with paper. Pp. iv, [list of plates], 319. Vignetted title-page plus 19 full page plates all hand-coloured as called for. Old ownership signature on first free endpaper and again faintly at head of page 1, small 20C. bookplate of Lawrence Strangman (the noted book-collector) on pastedown, a little very minor offseting from some plates, the odd mark to text; an excellent large copy in very clean and fresh condition, rarely seen in the original boards. One of the several imitations of William Combe's series of Dr Syntax books, the illustrations sometimes attributed to Isaac Robert Cruikshank (George's brother), though more likely by other illustrators (but definitely nothing to do with Rowlandson!).
