About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Humbugs and Canterbury Folks.

Description:

A silly book, includes author, Mr. Hall, dressed as Mrs. Wilberforce. 18 illustrations. To quote the preface, "I told him this book was written for a purpose, and that purpose was to prevent young men and women from wasting years of their lives chasing the modern follies that don't amount to anything, unless it is to curse mankind and enrich the pockets of a lot of impostors who are too lazy to do honest work, and who don't believe in eating bread by the sweat of their brows." All seems to be tongue in cheek. Bookseller Inventory #

Excerpt from Humbugs and Canterbury Folks This book, and that I d nough sight better be making biscuits and turnovers, which is woman s first duty. More n all that he says there won t nobody read it after its writ, unless it is the kind of folks that ain t got much to do of any consequence. Now I want to know if that isn t just like a man for all the world always a thinkin of his stomach. Well, I told him the stomach must have food, of course, but land of good ness, the mind needs a little nourishment now and then as well as the body, else we remain beasts along with the rest of the animal kingdom. If we would be more than that we must consider something besides good blood. First feed the mind, and feed it well, and then there will be intelligence enough grown to feed the body as it should be without the danger of gluttony and dissipation destroying it. I told him this book was written for a purpose, and that purpose was to prevent young men and women from wasting years of their lives chasing the modern follies that don t amount to anything, unless it be to curse mankind and enrich the pockets of a lot of imposters who are too lazy to do honest work, and who don t believe in eating bread by the sweat of their brows. And then I says if only a few are brought to the realization that their brains are made for use, and for their own use, without leaning on anybody else as a sort of prop; in short, to develop an individuality of their own, as God Almighty intended they should, then I shall con sider I ve not wasted my time, biscuits, or no biscuits.
