Catalogue Raisonnés

Catalogue Raisonnés are complete lists of works created by artists.  Often, they include pertinent essays or other information, including bibliographies, collections where the works can be located, or the provenance of the works.


Cohn, Albert M.  Bibliographical Catalogue of the Printed Works Illustrated by George Cruikshank.  New York: Longmans, Green & Co., 1914.

            RBC NC1479.C9 C69 1914

            This work is “an attempt at a complete and accurate guide to the nature of the nature of the various printed books illustrated by George Cruikshank.”  This work can be used to search the Rare Book Collection card catalog for titles illustrated by Cruikshank.  It does not, however, list the individual and separate works created by Cruikshank, for example many caricatures, etchings, lithographs and woodcuts.


Cohn, Albert M.  George Cruikshank:  A Catalogue Raisonné of the Work Executed During the Years 1806-1877; with Collations, Notes, Approximate Values, Facsimiles, and Illustrations.  London: Office of “The bookman’s journal,” 1924. 

            ART CAGE ANNEX NC1479.C9 C72  

            This is no. 96 out of 500 printed copies.  This is a complete, comprehensive volume of all the work created by George Cruikshank.  The first part is an alphabetical list of all the books illustrated by him, and the second part is a list of individual caricatures and separate prints.  At the back, there is an appendix entitled, “A Chronological list of books, papers, and magazines containing the more important essays or articles dealing with the work and genius of George Cruikshank.”  It was published in 1924, so it does not include any of the more recent publications, but is very useful for finding contemporary criticism of his work.  Many of the journals in which these articles and critiques appeared are rare today and difficult to locate, but a reference librarian may be able to point you in the right direction.


Wardroper, John.  The Carciatures of George Cruikshank. Boston: David R. Godine, 1978.

            ART or RBC NC1479.C9 A4 1978

            This catalog is good because it is dedicated solely to his caricatures.  It is a comprehensive catalog, and has good quality illustrations.
