MARBLED END PAGES. 1" BOOK SELLERS' LABEL ON ALL 4 INSIDE BACK COVERS: "ESTES & LAURIAT NEW & OLD BOOKS BOSTON". CONTRARY TO MY NON-EDITORIAL POLICY, I CAN'T HOLD BACK. RICHARD HEAD HAS A HUMOROUS HAND. FROM THE TITLE PAGE: "Read, but do'nt Practice: for the Author finds, They which live Honeft have moft quiet mindes." PRIOR TO THE FIRST CHAPTER HE WRITES: "TO THE READER, In ftead of the ERRATA. This Rogue hath had his faults, the Printers too; All men whilst here do erre; and so may you." HISTORY, HISTORICAL FICTION, FICTION? WHATEVER THE MIXTURE, IT'S WELL DONE. AND RIVETING. HE'S NOT JUST A WIT, HE'S A SAGE. FROM VOL. I, CHAPTER XXII, PAGES 204 & 207: "Some Observations concerning Love and Women ., In the first place, marry none but whom you love; for he that marries where he doth not love, will love where he did not marry." IF I WERE TO PROVIDE ALL OF THE ENJOYABLE TEXT, YOU WOULD HAVE THE FULL FOUR VOLUMES. IF THRIFT IS A NECESSITY, DON'T MISS OUT, PURCHASE A RECENT REPRINT. THIS SET IS WELL MADE, PLEASANT TO THE EYE, SIZED FOR EASY HANDLING, WILL ENHANCE ANY SHELF AND PROBABLY STOP A READER FROM ACCOMPLISHING OTHER TASKS. IF YOU NOTE ZEALOUS ENTHUSIASM, SO BE IT! I COULD GO ON, BUT LET THE BOOKS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES. IF YOU KNOW MORE, SPEAK TO ME. Size: 12MO Size: 12MO. Bookseller Inventory # 01905.62
