Cover of Punch Magazine

Punch, the magazine of humour and satire, ran from 1841 until its closure in 2002. A very British institution with an international reputation for its witty and irreverent take on the world, it published the work of some of the greatest comic writers (Thackeray, P G Wodehouse and P J O’Rourke among others) and gave us the cartoon as we know it today. Its political cartoons swayed governments while its social cartoons captured life in the 19th and 20th centuries. The world’s finest cartoonists appeared in Punch: such great names as John Leech, Tenniel, E H Shepard, Fougasse, and Pont.


Darvill's Rare Prints is pleased to offer the following cartoons from 1844-1916.
The sheet size is about 8 x 10 3/4 inches and the cartoons are printed on both sides of the paper, unless noted. Please click on a thumbnail to see an enlarged view. Condition is mostly excellent with slight corner or edge wear. The earlier cartoons from the 1840s and 1850s may have some foxing.

THE PROBABLE SOURCE OF THESE PRINTS IS "CARTOONS FROM PUNCH" PUBLISHED BY BRADBURY, AGNEW & CO OF LONDON IN 1906
