A Lecture on Heads

£27.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Vernor, Hood and Sharpe, 1806
Stevens, George Alex.
With 47 heads drawn by Nesbit, after Thurston
It is in the form of a lecture, finding humour in the description of varied heads, and their owners! Today's readers might find the humour somewhat heavy, but the text with the drawings is still of interest - a curiosity!
Hardback, pocket-sized; 113 pages.
Condition: the covers are badly worn, and the spine is torn at the top. The binding is firm and the pages are clean. The front and back inside fly-papers are stained and foxed.
