A Jolly Good Read! (1806)

Fretful Murmur.

More miseries!! Addressed to the morbid, the melancholy, and the irritable. By Sir Fretful Murmur, Knt.

Published: London: printed for H. D. Symonds, and Mathews and Leigh, 1806.

Date: 1806

Folded col. frontis., xv, [1], 176p. Probable original plain cloth, chipped at spine ends. Signs of label removed from first front endpaper, and old mark to second front endpaper, which is also creased (see pictures). Neatly done but I suspect the outer third of the folding plate has at some time come adrift and been re-attached. Binding tight, contents unmarked and clean.

A very entertaining compilation of the frustrations of daily life.

A very good copy.
