What Our Customers Say...
Colour Plates, Illustrated, Leather Binding, Scarce
Three volumes bound in one, all illustrated by Phil May.
Phil May was an important caricaturist of the Victorian era; he played a large role in the artistic styles moving away form the traditional Victorian styles towards the modern humorous cartoon.
These three works showcase May's entertaining work, paired with humorous written pieces that exemplify Victorian satire.
