163 [Berryman, Clifford Kennedy] (C.K. Berryman) (1869-1949) [Presumed cartoonist, or primary cartoonist, although uncredited] Mother Goose in Gridiron Rhyme. December 1911 A Collection of Alphabets, Rhymes, Tales and Jingles With 80 Illustrations. December Dinner of the Gridiron Club
Washington DC The Gridiron Press December 9, 1911 First edition Wraps Very Good 
Inscribed by C.K. Berryman, the cartoonist, to H.W. Berryman. The inscription states, "This book is inscribed by the illustrator C.K. Berryman". 8vo. 20 by 16.5 cm. 74, [1] pp. Cartoons are of the political luminaries of the day, including many names still recognizable, such as Elihu Root, William Borah, Taft, TR, Robert LaFolette, , Gifford Pinchot, Henry Stimson, Woodrow Wilson, and on and on. Clever rhymes for the ABC and then clever variants of well-known nursery rhymes. The drawings capture the persons depicted with great fidelity yet impressive economy. Berryman began his career as an artist for the patent office before joining the staff of "The Washington Post" in 1891 as an understudy for its chief cartoonist, then becoming its official cartoonist in 1896. In 1907 he left the Post for "The Washington Star" where he drew cartoons until his death. He is probably best known for inspiring the Teddy Bear. The Gridiron Club was founded in 1885 and remains one of the most prestigious press clubs in the nation. The Gridiron Dinner is an annual rite in Washington, often attended by the sitting President. This book is uncommon in the original printing.

An Essay on the Art of Ingeniously Tormenting. A New Edition, Corrected, Revised, and Illustrated with Five Prints, From Designs by G. M. Woodward, [Collier, Jane].  Illustrations by George Moutard Woodward.  Thomas Rowlandson, engraver
165 [Collier, Jane]. Illustrations by George Moutard Woodward. Thomas Rowlandson, engraver An Essay on the Art of Ingeniously Tormenting. A New Edition, Corrected, Revised, and Illustrated with Five Prints, From Designs by G. M. Woodward
London Thomas Tegg 1809 Full Calf, Cloth slipcase Very Good Minus 
12mo. 16 by 10 cm. [4],160 pp. Five hand-colored plates, the frontis plate being a fold-out. This tongue-in-cheek primer on caddishness was at the time of this edition a popular parody of the eighteenth century manuals on manners and their versions of self-improvement tracts. The text still is a funny read, and might be particularly savored as one dips into other Georgian, or Regency, comedy of manners (Sheridan, Goldsmith, Austen, etc.). Readers of the day must have laughed aloud when they recognized in the various ironic tips the bad behavior of others, and perhaps uncomfortably, in themselves. On another level, this is a work that is all about power and the abuse of power, and thus its relevance has not really receded. Woodward, being a caricaturist well-schooled in the crudities of society, is a fitting illustrator of some of the finer points of tormenting laid out in the treatise, and his illustrations more than anything else, by capturing the spirit of the work, transport us back to the time and place depicted supremely well. Condition: rebacked, with most of original spine pasted on, but missing top compartment and many chips of the original spine. Pages are heavily age toned, and some tiny closed tearing and/or edge chipping to prelims and rear blanks, and small chip to folding frontis.
