For more than forty years Linley Sambourne was a draftsman for the comic magazine Punch, rising to the position of ‘First Cartoonist’ in his final decade and thereby a significant contributor to late Victorian and Edwardian political satire. A hundred years on, the distinguished scholar Leonee Ormond has written an illuminating biography, using Sambourne’s own copious records preserved in his house at 18 Stafford Terrace, Kensington, London—now a museum.
