  • Text by John Payne Collier, who, in the few months that had passed since his first manuscript went to the printer, "had succeeded in tracking down some elusive references and had gathered much new material. For the second edition he added this matter to the already multitudinous footnotes ... The type and general make-up are the same as for the first edition, but there are little improvements ...;" see Paul McPharlin in the Colophon, New Series I, no. 3 (Winter 1936)
  • Contains 24 plates by George Cruikshank in two states: hand-colored, and black-and-white proofs on india paper, each pair of proofs separated by a guard leaf of tissue. According to H.W. Bruton, preeminent Cruikshank collector, "The india proofs are the earliest issue. They--the india proofs--were originally published in a small portfolio without letterpress in 1828, but they evidently did not meet with a ready sale, and they were then cut down and used as the illustrations to the third edition of the book. In the third edition, which I bought of Jackson, who purchased it at J. Payne Collier's sale, was his note: 'the plates are from edition I...'"

Spec. Coll. copy: full crushed and polished dark green levant morocco, signed by Riviere & Son; triple gilt fillets; spine panels elaborately decorated in gilt, with floral ornaments; gold-stamped spine title "Punch and Judy. George Cruikshank. Lond. 1828;" dark aubergine coated endpapers; inner gilt dentelles. Formerly owned by H.W. Bruton, whose ms. bibliographic note appears on verso of first front free endpaper, and recto of following. Extra-illustrated by Bruton: [2] leaves of india proofs of the four woodcuts--two drawings per leaf--have been inserted at pp. 32 and 86. Laid in: two newspaper clippings: one, from the [London?] Times, contains a letter to the editor by H.W. Bruton of Gloucester, responding to another reader's inquiry concerning the origins of the European Punch by quoting from Collier's text; the other, from the Observer of Feb. 19, 1922, is an article lamenting the demise of the oldest Punch-and-Judy puppeteer showman in England; the number of itinerant Punch and Judy showmen has dwindled away, and if not for the new Punch-and-Judy entertainment in the drawing room nowadays, there would be no Punch-and-Judy in England at all. Purchase, Jesse Rossa, Triolet Rare Books, 2012.
