About this Item

Title woodcut vignette of a gentleman with a large paunch, leaning on a cane. Extracted from Chapter 9 of a fictional work by David Macbeth Moir, published in Blackwood's Magazine from 1827. The contents consist of episodes from the life of Mansie Wauch. Among them are a vividly described childhood memory of a visit to a fair, Wauch's meeting with his wife in the course of his apprenticeship and his subsequent marriage, a visit to the theatre in which the inhabitants of the cheap seats cause the gallery to fall down on the rest of the audience, and an incident in which the tailor discovers a French soldier hiding in his coal cellar. "[No.] 79" printed at foot of title. 12mo, 24 pp. Original self-wrappers (unbound; removed). The bottom corner of the second leaf is creased, else very good. Bookseller Inventory # 17646
