Title: The Tour of Doctor Syntax Through London, or...
Publisher: J. Johnston
Publication Date: 1820
Illustrator: Nineteen Color Plates Plus Color Illustrated Title Page.
Book Condition: Very Good
Edition: 3rd Edition
The hand colored plates still bright and pleasing. Although classified as an imitation of the William Combe Doctor Syntax tour books, this is a handsome production with color plates that approach in quality and comic effect the work done by Cruikshank and Rowlandson. Either of whom may have been the anonymous illustrator of this volume. The three quarter leather binding with marbled paper over boards is considerably rubbed but the gilt on the spine is still bold. Hinges cracked but the binding still firm. Final plate margin was close cropped and the caption of Doctor Syntax on stage at a play was cut off. The image not affected. All edges of text block are gilt. A very decent survior of an age when even the knock off books were of high quality. . Size: Octavo, [ii], 319 Pp. Bookseller Inventory # 2808
