About this Item

Attributed to Hector Macneill, this verse tale recounts how Will, seduced by a brightly painted sign announcing "Porter, Ale and British Spirits," takes to drink and eventually drives his wife Jean to the bottle as well. After a long separation, in which Will goes to war in France and comes back with a wooden leg, man and wife reform and are reunited. The title-page woodcut vignette shows a soldier in kilt, cap and sporran leaning on a rifle by a tombstone; there is a decorative woodcut tailpiece also. "[No.] 36" printed at foot of title. Rare: This edition not found in OCLC or COPAC. 12mo. 24 pp. NSTC 2W21326. Removed from a nonce volume. Slightly age-toned, with very faint staining to one leaf. Bookseller Inventory # 24437
