A scarce work.

The fifth edition of this work.

An entertaining and puzzling collection of charades, enigmas, and riddles, intended for the perusal and amusement of the reader.

Illustrated with a frontispiece, and two plates.

Compiled anonymously, though attributed to 'a Cantab' to the title page.

Thirty-two pages of publisher's adverts to the rear.

Condition

In the original publisher's cloth binding. Externally, smart. Minor bumping to the head and tail of the spine and to the extremities. Light rubbing and marks to the boards and spine.
