A group of 23 sketches by two generations of the Cruikshank family, various media, mostly pencil or ink with occasional color, including a profile image of a man by Isaac Cruikshank, c.1790s; a sketch of a rattlesnake by Isaac with an ink and watercolor image of a foundering ship by George on the verso; 2 full-page 4to leaves covered in multiple sketches in pencil; 2 similar leaves in 8vo; a graphite and colored pencil sketch of an illustration identified as the drawing for "The Marble Count" for Kit Bam's Adventure, by Mary Cowden Clarke (1849), 115 x 85 mm; 5 profile caricatures in watercolor on the verso of a letter; various other small sketches and studies, some on letters and envelopes, one on a calling card of a Mrs. Rhoades. Several with ink signatures of George Cruikshank. Condition varies, man with stains, creases, and adhesive residue. Contained in 22 card stock folders with typed descriptions, housed in a 20th century green cloth chemise and slipcase.

Although George Cruikshank is the best known of the family, his father Isaac was also a celebrated caricaturist from the "golden age" of British caricature — a contemporary of James Gillray and Thomas Rowlandson. George's brother, Isaac Robert Cruikshank was also an illustrator and caricaturist.
