A propos de cet article

Illustrated by Fritz Kredel. Xiv, 137, [1] pages, music, marbled boards, frayed cloth backstrip otherwise very good. 9 by 13 inches. Stated 1st edition. "The songs gathered here reflect city and country life in the 18th century, whether at court, in the theater, or at the Exchange. Here are the pleasures of fox hunting, dancing, and gaming; mock-pastoral conventions on the one hand and low life on the other: the activities of pickpockets, cardsharpers, fences, and highwaymen, together with their doxies. Here, too, are cobblers, porters, small-coal sellers, tinkers, and oysterers, as well as kings and queens, generals and admirals, soldiers, sailors, drovers, and milkmaids - one vast society exuberantly alive at every level.".
