This humorous insight into a gentleman's desire to marry, and the awkward issues this brings to light is every bit as relevant today as it was during the 1880s when it was published.

Beautifully illustrated and serving as a testament to the fashions and preconceptions of the time, this really is a splendid historical record as well as a social commentary. Foxing, small tears and marks to cover, however images clean and crisp throughout.
