What Our Customers Say...
Leather Binding, Scarce
Scarce work. The vellum parchment shilling series. A second volume of the work English as She is Spoke: Or, A Jest in Sober Earnest, a study of the English vernacular, with reference to pronunciation and word formation. Initially intended as a Portuguese–English conversational guide or phrase book, because the provided translations are usually inaccurate or unidiomatic, it is regarded as a classic source of unintentional humour in translation. Written by Pedro Carolino, a Portuguese author and linguist.
In the original vellum binding. Externally, sound with light bumping to the extremities. Chipping to the head and tail of the spine resulting in loss. Tide mark to the front board. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean with light age toning.
