Like the worthy who figures below, there is such a choice of pleasures here, that we are puzzled with which to begin.
The Cruikshank collector will recognizes this old friend as coming from the late Mr Clark's excellent work, ' Three Courses and a Dessert.' The work was published at a time when the rage for comic stories was not so great as it since has been, and Messrs Clark and Cruikshank only sold their hundreds where Messrs Dickens and Phiz dispose of their thousands. But if our recommendation can in any way influence the reader, we would enjoin him to have a copy of the ' Three Courses ' that contains some of the best designs of our artist, and some of the most amusing tales in our language. The invention of the pictures, for which Mr Clark takes credit to himself, says a great deal for his wit and fancy. Can we, for instance, praise too highly the man who invented this wonderful oyster ?
