Notes

First edition of this collection of essays edited by Jerrold's grandson, featuring Brock's delicate illustrations. The brothers C. E. and H. M. Brock collaborated closely with the publisher for J. M. Dent, perhaps most notably illustrating the novels of Jane Austen. They "worked closely together in the same studio and gained stimulation from each other Although meticulous in signing their drawings, H.M.'s can usually be told apart by their thicker ink lines and bolder handling" (The Dictionary of 19th Century British Book Illustrators).
