ADRIAN, Arthur A. Mark Lemon : First Editor of Punch. London : Oxford University Press, 1966. First Edition. Pp. (8),[ix]-xiv,[1]-241,(1) + 8 pages ofb&w illustrations. 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to spine, top edge red . Arthur Allen Adrian (b. April 24, 1906, Moundridge, Kansas - d. October 21, 1996, Cleveland, Ohio). A biography of Mark Lemon (1809-1870), the firsteditor of Punch, published to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the found ing of the magazine in 1841. "A biography of Mark Lemon (1809-1870), the first Editor of Punch, has long been overdue, but Lemon has been fortunate inhis eventual biographer, Professor Arthur A. Adrian of the English Departm ent, Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, who has already shown hissympathetic understanding of the Victorian period in his life of Georgina Hogarth. Lemon is at last fully revealed as the man who was chiefly responsible for the survival of Punch in its early days, who edited the magazine for close on thirty years, and whose genial diplomacy and tact fused a miscellaneous band of writers and artists into the brotherhood of the Punch Table. Professor Adrian's researches have enabled him to present a fresh and absorbing picture of the early Punch collaborators; but he has done much morethan this. He has brought to light a representative Victorian of inexhaust ible energy and gusto, a prolific dramatist and author, an amateur actor famous for his Falstaff, the friend of Charles Dickens and Benjamin Webster, and not least a tireless philanthropist and public benefactor, whose own large family and generous temper kept him always impecunicous. It is a rich and readable study in Victoriana that Professor Adrian has given us to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the founding of Punch in 1841." (from the dj). Contents : Preface. 1. 'The Days of Glory'. 2. Hops, Chops, and Playbills. 3. Punch Is Born. 4. 'From Street Corner to Drawing-Room'. 5. Punch TableTalk. 6. Punch 'Jaunts and Jollities'. 7. Friends and Enemies. 8.
