Cruikshank at Home: A New Family Album of Endless Entertainment
Robert Cruikshank (1789 - 1856), caricaturist, illustrator and portrait miniaturist, compiled these amusing tales. Each book contains two volumes of delightfully strange stories. See if you can read "The German Gibbett" (in volume I) without a shiver - and a smile.
