Presumed 1860's facsimile edition, with title page reading: 'Printed and Sold by T. Read, in Dogwell Court. London: 1739.' Red paper covered boards with a green leather spine. 70 pp. 247 entries. A collection of witticisms, some perhaps considered a bit coarse or racy when originally written, assembling both classic jokes and ones contemporary to the publishing time period. Only three are attributed to Joe Miller (Encyclopedia Britannica). Joe Miller was an English actor, whose name, due to the popularity of this work, is referred to in various classics of literature, including Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," and Joyce's "Ulysses." GOOD+ condition. Moderate scuffing and fading to the book. Minor soiling and spotting to the covers. Extremities scuffed and worn. Minor pencil jottings to the verso of the front endpaper.
