PICTURES OF ENGLISH SOCIETY.

New York: D. Appleton & Co. 1884. First U.S edition. Cartoons and captions from "Punch Magazine" by George du Maurier, novelist and social commentator. The Punch website calls his work "a treasure trove of detailed Victorian fashions and drawing rooms, tastes, ettiquette and foibles" and "particularly good at revealing the pretensions and tensions of the 19th century." Plain paperwraps with tan, printed jacket folded on, as issued. Gift inscription from "R.W.F." to David Greene Haskins, a cousin and confident of Ralph Waldo Emerson. Paper cover darkened, lightly edge nicked and with clear tape to length of spine, otherwise about very good.
