...<b> A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy </b>, Mr. Yorick [Sterne, Lawrence]

 Two colored, full-color caricature plates by Rowlandson. 
Red calf, gilt ruled, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, raised bands. Marbled endpages, All edges gilt. -

A lively travel narrative and one of the premier examples of early "stream-of-consciousness" technique.

Bindings tight and square. Text clean, Moderate even toning. Modest handling wear. Spine aged; small part of spine label lacking. Faint front hinge repair with Scotch tape. Top spine band rubbed. Two pencil notations on free endpages probably by a bookseller from along the way. Printed by Hazard and Certhew, Beech Street, Barbicon. xii, 179, [1] pp. 16x10 cm(6¼x4")

Thomas Rowlandson was an English artist and caricaturist.
Rowlandson's designs were usually done in outline with the reed-pen, and delicately washed with color. They were then etched by the artist on the copper, and afterwards aquatinted—usually by a professional engraver, the impressions being finally colored by hand.
As a designer he was characterized by his facility and ease of draughtsmanship. He dealt less frequently with politics than his fierce contemporary, Gillray, but commonly touching, in a rather gentle spirit, the various aspects and incidents of social life.
His most artistic work is to be found among the more careful drawings of his earlier period; but even among the exaggerated caricature of his later time we find hints that this master of the humorous might have attained to the beautiful had he so willed.
