Address to the Subscribers,
ANECDOTES OF MR. HOGARTH,
EXPLANATORY DESCRIPTIONS OF HIS DESIGNS.
IT has long been a subject of regret among connoisseurs in the imitative arts, and the admirers of genuine humour, character, and genius, that the early and valuable impressions of Hogarth's productions are no longer to be procured, but at a most immoderate expence. It must be admitted, indeed, that a variety of editions have, from time to time, been ushered into the world on reasonable terms; but they have either been miserably executed and printed, or, from their diminutive size, have been unworthy of public patronage.
From the publication of Hogarth's large first impressions, to the introduction of Ireland's (or rather Trusler’s) Miniatures, the intermediate editions have wanted those masterly touches of character, those inimitable traits of humour, which may better be conceived than described, and which that great artist only was capable of furnishing. Hence some of the subjects which are still sanctioned with the name of Hogarth as the designer, are become insipid, tame, and uninteresting; and, instead of adorning the superb cabinets of taste and opulence, are hardly worthy of admission into the parlour of a common inn.
