Although Doctor Syntax became something of a folk hero, stimulating many copies in the nineteenth-century, the last reprint of Rowlandson's own work was in 1868. Since then, the series has never been reproduced in its entirety. Jerold Savory's Thomas Rowlandson's Doctor Syntax Drawings is the first book to include all the illustrations to the three Tours of Doctor Syntax. With over eighty reproductions, each accompanied by a commentary by the author and selections from the original verse, and many illustrations from sequels and other 'Syntaxiana', this book will become the definitive study of Rowlandson's Doctor Syntax illustrations and of the phenomenon that the character became.
