First Illustrated Editions
Volumes 1 and 2 ~ Handley Cross, Illustrated by John Leech,
aka: Mr. Jorrocks' Hunt.

First illustrated editions.
London, Lawrence and Bullen, Limited, 1898.

The book covers are spotty and there is some foxing in the front pages of each volume. Otherwise, all is well.

Amusing satirical accounts of Mr. Jorrocks' various adventures in the jolly olde England countryside.
John Leech's illustrations are delightfully detailed and and show funny takes on England's life in the late 1800's.

The preface mentions:
"The reader will have the kindness to bear in mind, that the work merely professes to be a tale, and does not aspire to the dignity of a novel. London: October 1854"

so may the buyer of these two volumes keep this in mind.
