A History of Caricature and Grotesque in Literature and Art (Classic Reprint) PDF Summary

Excerpt from A History of Caricature and Grotesque in Literature and Art The contents of the following pages, in which it was, in fact, my defign to give, as far as may be done within fuch moderate limits, and in as popular a manner as fach information can eafily be imparted, a general view of the Hifiory of Comic Literature and Art. Yet the word comic feems to me hardly to exprefs all the parts of the fubjee't which I have fought to bring together in my book. Moreover, the field of this hiftory is very large, and, though I have only taken as my theme one part of it, it was neceffary to circum fcribe even that, in fome degree; and my plan, there fore, is to follow it chiefly through thofe branches which have contributed moft towards the formation.
