The Natural History of Stuck-Up People – Albert Smith – 1847

Short Description

A fourth edition and scarce regardless. Published by David Bogue, London.

Even more scarce in its original form with delicate printed wrappers, albeit a little dusty and chipped. Small octavo, 116 pages with preliminaries and after catalogue.

Illustrated by A Henning. A hilarious put- down of Stuck-up people. Could still be well applied, approaching two hundred years later.

Takes us through the life and goings on of the rather stuck-up Lacquer family headed up by the well heeled Spangle Lacquer Esq.

“These good people partake much of the nature of mushrooms insomuch they haven’t only sprung up with great rapidity to their present elevation, but have also risen from mould of questionable delicacy”

Very useful early Victorian put-down of the stuck-up variety


Price: $120.00
