Gorilla Fight.He awoke the next Morning and found Himself Famous!!
Four very scarce engraved plates in original wrappers, slim oblong folio, 215 x 285mm (8½ x 11¼"). Wrappers chipped and soiled, small tears and slight foxing to plates.
Attributed to William Makepeace Thackeray and possibly Thomas Landseer. The copy in the Morris L. Parrish Collection of Victorian Novelists (Princeton University Library) has an additional leaf of letterpress and Thomas Landseer's name inscribed on the wrapper. Probably issued as a reaction against bare-knuckle prize fighting in Britain.
