Show Excerpt

Contents:

There's pippins and cheese to come

On buying old books

Any stick will do to beat a dog

Roads of morning

The man of Grub Street comes from his garret

Now that spring is here

The friendly genii

Mr. Pepys sits in the pit

To an unknown reader

A plague of all cowards

The asperities of the early British reviewers

The pursuit of fire.
