THE LIFE OF SIR JOHN FALSTAFF: Illustrated by George Cruikshank, with a Biography of the Knight, from Authentic Sources by Robert B. Brough, Esq.

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. Housed together in green-cloth chemise and full leather, marbled-paper lined, top-loading double slipcase with 5 raised bands and gilt lettering on spine. Cohn 96. CRUIKSHANK'S LAST MAJOR BOOK ILLUSTRATIONS.
