The Natural History of Tuft-Hunters and Toadies
Half calf and beige cloth, rebacked (a bit clumsily, but preserving the original backstrip), with gilt-stamped lettering and detail on spine. Illustrated, with lots of little engravings throughout. Boards a bit rubbed along the edges; previous owners' (tasteful) bookplate on front paste-down. A diverting little work of social satire, it exposes the many varieties of tuft-hunter and toady, whose "most leading characteristic is an entire freedom from anything like a taste or opinion of his own." Tuft-hunters and toadies are still very much in existence, we just call them something else today. Bookseller Inventory # SS100-3824
