Illustrated Periodicals of the 1860s, a study of contexts and collaborations. By Simon Cooke. Tall 4to, 228 p. : ill. ; 29 cm., London, British Library, 2010.

Upwards of 120 reproductions of wood engravings and preparatory drawings; mauve cloth, spine blocked in gilt, pictorial dust-jacket. A fine copy.

The 1860s are considered the 'Golden Age' of illustrated periodicals, a time when the 'knockabout' humour of the 1840s, which was dominated by illustrators such as Cruikshank, Doyle and Phiz, gave way to a more considered style grounded in serious artistic principles, allowing for deeper expression and emotion in artistic output.
