Description

A crudely executed rip-off by Ebenezer Landells of Cruikshank’s illustration from Jack Sheppard. Perhaps one reason that Cruikshank refused to design for Punch. To see his work so crudely imitated surely added insult to injury.

Containing the weekly issues of Punch from its first publication in July through December 1841. Each issue had one wood-engraving entitled “Punch’s Pencillings.
