Jorrocks's Jaunts and Jollities by R.S. Surtees


Hardcover. Conditon: Very Good. Dust Jacket: Good. 1961. Methuen.

Fifteen coloured illustrations by Henry Aiken.

This humorous narrative of the sporting experiences of a cockney grocer, which suggested the more famous 'Pickwick Papers' of Charles Dickens, is the work by which Surtees is chiefly remembered, though his novel 'Handley Cross', published in 1843, in which the character of "Jorrocks" is reintroduced as a master of fox-hounds, also enjoyed a wide popularity.
