Abstract

Punch, Or the London Charivari was a magazine established in 1841 by Henry Mayhew and engraver Ebenezer Landells, and jointly edited by Mayhew and Mark Lemon. Joining the Punch Brotherhood of artists who included John Leech, Richard Doyle, John Tenniel and Charles Keene, was one Charles Dickens, who in 1843, joined publishers Bradbury and Evans after leaving Chapman and Hall. Although the humour and satire in this very British weekly is now dated, it was read and enjoyed by many.
