It was most historically influential in the 1840s and 50s, for example helping to coin the term "cartoon" in its modern sense as a humorous illustration, it would remain a British institution for decades with circulation not peaking until the 1940s before going into a long decline and closing in 1992.
This print is on a page 11" x 8 1/2" with the image about 9 1/2" x 7". It is in good condition and is blank on the back. It has natural age toning and is rough around the edges.
