Printing Year:


      A Most Rare Copy of Selections from the Rejected Cartoons with Descriptive Letterpress and Critical Remarks. Publ. Thomas McLean, London  and Frederick Syrett 1848. With Handwritten Dedication by Frederick Syrett. 1848.

An Altogeter Most Interesting and Graphically Stimulating Victorian Illustrated Book in Folio Format.

This is a beautifully illustrated folio presented book of cartoons depicting historical events, complete with commentary. The numerous illustrations are loose leaf and could easily be mounted and framed - since the book is not bound as such. 

What strikes us most about this very rare book is that the engravings , presented in black on a buff ground, have the look and feel of a much later time. Being published in 1848, some of these could just as easily have been drawn in 1948 or the few years before that - the look is very Art Deco - see St George and his horse! Others could just as easily have been drawn by Tenniel, for the Alice books. Look at the smiling lion!

The book measures approx 27.5 cm by 37 cm. ( wt approx 0.62 kg ). It is in worn used condition. There is no restoration. There is some foxing here and there and some folding- We have tried to show the condition below. Despite the look of the cover, most of the plates are clean and fresh inside . Please study the close up pictures below for full details. 

Shipping within the UK is 7 GBP.

The buyer pays full shipping costs. Payment by Bank Transfer, Visa/Mastercard, UK personal cheque in Pounds Sterling. Shipping subject to clearance.

Please be aware that many auctions are being won in the last second by users of automated bidding software. To ensure that you are not outbid under your maximum in the dying moments I recommend the use of a proxy bid! Good Luck!
