Acquisitions: Birthday Punch

I just received a stack of Punch Magazines for my 18th birthday. The stack consists of five one-year bound copies of Punch from 1875, 1877, 1880, 1881 and 1882. The Punch Magazines are fully illustrated and make a great resource for historic fashion, politics and other bits of history. Here are some prints from Punch 1880.

TRIUMPH!

The above print is a cartoon of William Gladstone after he won the April 1880 election and became prime minister.

OUR DEFENDERS.

THE NEW STAMP DUTY.

I also got my self a pair of late 19th century field glasses with case.
