Hogarth to Cruikshank: Social Change in Graphic Satire

M. Dorothy George

Viking, 1987.

224 pages, hardback in dust wrapper.

Very good condition throughout. A publishers flaw has resulted a slight ridge across the front of the dust wrapper.

Lavishly illustrated survey of the great age of English caricature encompassing the work of Hogarth, Gillray, Rowlandson, the Cruikshank family and many others.  A new edition of a classic work originally published in 1967. Dorothy George (1878-1971) was well known as an authority on the eighteenth century, both as a social historian and expert on caricature. She compiled the British Museum's Catalogue of Political and Personal Satires for the period 1771-1832.

'A truly magnificent book... Mrs George has succeeded to perfection and deserves the highest praise.' - Malcom Muggeridge in The Observer
