Two Hundred Sketches Humorous and Grotesque by Gustave Doré

PREFFCE

AMONG the many drawings by GUSTAVE DORE which have of late been published in England and elsewhere, comparatively few represent the Artist in the direction in which his real strength is generally confessed to lie. "As a grotesque designer," says one of the principal London literary journals, " he has no living rival, and few equals in former times;" but the works "with Illustrations by DORE" put forth to show his excellence, not unfrequently present him in that phase in which his peculiar talent is not exhibited to advantage.

The present volume shows GUSTAVE DORE as a master of the grotesque ; and the Publishers appeal to the Public, to whom the volume is offered, confident in the expectation that the high estimate formed by those to whom these Sketches are already familiar, will be corroborated by the general verdict.
