Issue Checklist


The most famous British humorous paper, for many years it was subtitled "The London Charivari." Achieved a circulation of circa 40,000 by 1860. Amidst its amusing essays and cartoons (the latter by Richard Doyle, John Tenniel, George du Maurier and many others), it has published a good deal of fiction, mostly in the form of short funny sketches and storyettes, some of which subsequently went to make up celebrated "novels," e.g. George & Weedon Grossmith's The Diary of a Nobody (1892) and H.F. Ellis's The Papers of A.J. Wentworth, B.A. (1949).
