London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, and Roberts. 1857--1858. First edition, in the original monthly parts: TEN OCTAVO PARTS IN PICTORIAL PAPERWRAPS, housed together in cloth chemise and leather top-loading slipcase. Each part with two full-page illustrated plates at front, twenty etched plates in all; and woodcut illustration after Cruikshank replicated on front of each wrapper. Original front covers, all but one with publisher's presentation blindstamp; lacking original rear covers (each with plain tan wrap at rear instead) and without the tissue guards between the plates. Each part appears to have been trimmed at top and bottom, Part X front cover darkened, else all are very good with only minor soiling to covers and with plates themselves near fine to fine.

Edinburgh: W. Sutherland. 1823. First edition. Twelve hand-colored plates by George and Robert Isaac Cruikshank. No attribution but someone has written above three dancing partners "George Cruikshank, Robert Cruikshank, P. Egan." Only record we could find of title was, " With coloured frontispiece of Mr. H. Johnston as Jerry. Second Edition." in a Magg's catalog from 1935 (Rare Book Hub). And for some reason the listing didn't mention the place of publication, but assume as Magg's it was London or would have been mentioned. This copy was owned by Albert M. Cohn with his bookplate. He wrote the Cruikshank Catalog Raissone published in 1926 and he has written on the front pastedown, "Of the greatest rarity have seen no other copy." Bound with flat leather spine and brown paper boards. Inner hinge paper cracked but still tight. Scattered foxing but not bad and the plates are relatively clean. RARE CRUIKSHANK & EGAN PRODUCTION.
