A BOOK OF
ANECDOTE, LACONIC SAYINGS, AND
WARD, LOCK & TYLER,
WARWICK HOUSE, PATERNOSTER ROW, E.C.
THE following compilation is designed to form a handy volume of curious and entertaining selections which do not properly fall within the province of "Popular Readings," "Elegant Extracts," etc.; many of them, indeed, are gleanings from the by-ways of Literature, and are probably known to few general readers.
The Editor ventures to hope that the present selection will prove acceptable to a large class who have little or no time or disposition to devote themselves to a regular course of literary study; and that, to such readers, this little book may furnish some amusement and even instruction.
W. A. C.
