Interesting Volume by irish writer Charles Lever, following Arthur O’Leary on his many Travels on mainland Europe with adventures and tragedies happening, some of which are reflected in the wonderful caricatures of George Cruikshank. The Volume comes from the Historical Library at Cholwell House, which was re-built by William Rees-Mogg, the great-great-grandfather of British politician, Jacob Rees-Mogg.

George Cruikshank (27 September 1792 – 1 February 1878) was a British caricaturist and book illustrator, praised as the “modern Hogarth” during his life. His book illustrations for his friend Charles Dickens, and many other authors, reached an international audience (Wikipedia)
