A hand-coloured aquatint etching on wove paper, from the  3rd Edition. This is the illustrated title page. Size is about 5.5 x 9 inches. Signature above title, some discoloration, a very good copy, attractively coloured. This title was written in imitation of William Combe's three Doctor Syntax tours. Thomas Rowlandson has been credited with the illustrations to this book, but it seems more likely that they are by Isaac Robert Cruikshank. From advertisements quoted in Tooley, at least two artists were involved in making the plates (RV Tooley, 'English books with coloured plates 1790 to 1860' ( Folkestone and London, 1973), cat. no. 434).
Title: Illustrated Title Page. [From: The Tour of Doctor Syntax Through London, or the Pleasures and Miseries of the Metropolis. A Poem. By Doctor Syntax. Third Edition.]
