"This Edition... contains all those rhythmical Poems on which the fame of the inimitable humourist rests. Although he has imitators, Thomas Ingoldsby remains unapproached, and, like Hogarth, his genius in peculiarly English.
"This Volume is enriched with rare felicity by George Cruikshank, John Tenniel, and John Leech, whose productions, executed con amore, will henceforth be associated with the now famous Thomas Ingolsbdy." (Publisher's advertisement, page v.).
