(VOLUME 2) SECOND EDITION, CORRECTED: Hand-colored frontispiece etching, "Mr. Oxberry as Jerry Hawthorn," by Robert Cruikshank. "Bingham, Printer, Tavistock-street, Covent-garden" on title page. Bound by Wallis in 8vo three-quarter leather over light brown cloth boards, gilt-lettered spine; 40 pp; top edge gilt. Front cover, front free endpaper and first blank detached, rubbing along edges of leather, lower half inch of spine leather rubbed to board. Provenance: Bookplate of William Hartmann Woodin, who served as the Secretary of Treasury under Franklin Roosevelt, in each. In the first, Woodin’s bookplate partially obscures that of J. Barton Townsend whose collection of color-plate books was auctioned in 1919, and in the second, that of Cruikshank bibliographer Alfred M. Cohn whose collection was auctioned in 1920. The first and second editions of the "Larks" are exceedingly scarce if not rare, as is "Songs, Parodies, etc."
