About this Item

"A companion to 'English as She is Spoke.'" Publication date matches copyright date. 96 pp. followed by 8 pages of ads including one for "The Parchment Shakspere / A new edition of Shakspere's Works, Bound in parchment, uncut, gilt top." Silliness with homophones; letters received by the publisher from the literately challenged, etc. A bit of edgewear, small brown stain on back, but in better condition than most paperbacks of a century later. At page bottoms at pp 36-39 (the section on amusing epitaphs) a few more have been added, in ink script, in a 19th century hand. A charming book, still easily read. Reduced from $45.
