About

Dull cover - front WEBThe late Basil Morley, esq., spent a lifetime judiciously avoiding the limelight in one dull pursuit after another. He may be unable to do so in the afterlife, as there remain treasures like this pamphlet to be looted from his jumble of notebooks, cabinets and miniature terrariums. Though he might quail at the sudden wave of untoward attention, there is little he can do about it now because his literary executor is a ruthless hussy.

We offer gracious thanks to the British Library for making so much wonderful book art available freely.
