Issue Notes

Cobbett's Weekly Political Register, Volume 65, of 14th June 1828, advertises this issue of Bell's Life in London "On Sunday, the 22d of June, will contain a reprint of the twenty engravings, which have appeared under the head of "The Gallery of Comicalities" during last six months. They will occupy the space of four folio columns, and consist of three series, viz. six prints of Hogarth's Harlot's Progress, six spirited sketches of British sports, and Eight of Monkeyana, or the Gambler's Progress. The cost of the twenty prints, for drawing and engraving, was one hundred guineas, the whole of which may be bought for seven pence, in Bell's Life in London, of Sunday the 22d of June."

The same ad appears in The Literary Gazette, and Journal of the Belles Lettres.

The Observer, belonging to the same publisher, reprints 27 or 28 engravings from Bell's on 21 July 1828. They are most likely from this issue.
