This is a bound copy of the 1884 edition with an Almanack for 1884. According to Wikipedia, "initially it was subtitled The London Charivari, this being a reference to a satirical humour magazine published in France as Le Charivari. Reflecting their satiric and humorous intent, the two editors took for their name and masthead the anarchic glove puppet, Mr. Punch, of Punch and Judy; the name also referred to a joke made early on about one of the magazine's first editors, Lemon, that "punch is nothing without lemon". Punch was responsible for the word "cartoon" as a comic drawing. ; Vol. 87; B&W Illustrations; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 312 +Almanack pages
