On the spine, below the title of the book is the name "Cruikshank." The lovely aquatints are in the style of Cruikshank, but they are not Cruikshank; the illustrator is anonymous. The book is a satire, showing what would happen if society put Rev. Fletcher on trial; the head of the jury was Sir Walter Scott. An attractive looking book. FIRST ED.
