'Such, dear readers, is the cheerful Philosophy which I practise as well as preach. It teaches to 'make a sunshine in a shady place', The preface introduces the plethora of comic pieces in two volumes. There are many humorous vignettes. The book to take up and enjoy delving into the many funny sketches, letters and prose. Two beautiful volumes.
Gilt title and design to spines, some wear through use to morocco and marbled boards, bumping to corners, marbling to all edges, some foxing to pages and principally title pages, general browning to pages as with many books of this period.
