The Natural History of "Bores"Reach, Angus B.; Hine, H. G. (illus.)"Includes ancient bores, story-telling bores, pretentious bores, a few chapters on feminine bores (including strong-minded women bores and "the blue" -- who, amongst other faults, "can write an ode but not darn a sock," heaven forfend), the man-with-a-grievance bore, country acquaintance bore, theatrical bores, and (perhaps the volume's saving grace) a chapter on philoprogenitive boreism. Snark will never die."The Natural History of the Idler Upon TownSmith, Albert R., Hine, H. G. (illus.)Albert Richard Smith (May 24, 1816 May 23, 1860), was an English author, entertainer, and mountaineer. The son of a surgeon, he studied medicine in Londonand in Paris, and his first literary effort was an account of his life there, which appeared in the Mirror. He gradually abandoned his medical work in favour of writing. Though a journalist rather than a literary figure, he was one of the most popular writers of his time, and a favourite humorist. He was one of the early contributors to Punch and was also a regular contributor to Richard Bentley's Miscellany, in whose pages his first and best known book, the novel The Adventures of Mr Ledbury, appeared in 1842. He also wrote a series of so-called natural histories: The Gent (1847), The Ballet Girl (1847), 'Stuck-Up' People (1847), Humbugs (1847) andThe Idler upon Town (1848).Item Description: 2 Vols., Bound to matchPublished by D.
