                            Prefatory Note.


The present collection of Sir John Tenniel’s Cartoons is intended to be
a selection comprising the more memorable of those which have appeared
in “Punch” during the last 50 years. The first in the collection bears
the date of 1851, and the last is Sir John Tenniel’s final Cartoon in
January, 1901. Short explanatory notes have been provided, but as most
of them will, perhaps, be unnecessary to those to whom the Cartoons
themselves are familiar, they have been grouped together and combined
with the Table of Contents at the commencement of the volume, where
they can readily be referred to.

  _March, 1901._
