Cloth backed patterned boards. Illustrations. No. 750 of 1000 copies. Page edges are uncut. Margin tear to top of pages 7-8 and 23-24. In the Introduction the author is described thusly: "His wit is as genuine as it is spontaneous, and his angle of astigmatism presents the world as slightly yet as ever so merrily askew". "He makes his murderers blithe and jaunty, his gamblers and winebibbers fairly bawl for joie de vivre, his duellists are as eager for the fray as the lover for his lass." "To any one who relishes an imp, who has in inborn love for the freakish, Weems cannot fail to win his way". Contents: "Hymen's Recruiting Sergeant" - Or the New Matrimonial Tat-too, for the Old Bachelors - With some Elegant Songs; "The Drunkard's Look ing Glass" - Reflecting a faithful likeness of the drunkard, in sundry very interesting attitudes, with lively representations of the many strange capers which he cuts at different stages of his disease"; "God's Revenge Against Adultery" - Awfully e xemplified in the following cases of American Crim. Con. Bookseller Inventory # 2872
