This is a separately-issued engraving, not a book; extra shipping charges may apply. Full publication information: Laurie & Whittle, 53 Fleet Street, London: June 24, 1800. Illustrated song sheet about a smooth-talking Irish con man who "lives like a lord, and has nothing to pay." The song recounts how he dresses the part of a wealthy gentleman and invents a story about being from a wealthy family, managing to mooch off of unsuspecting members of the upper class and running up tabs with various merchants on London's fashionable Bond Street. Eventually, as the illustration shows, his creditors catch on to his trickery, ending his spree. The song by 18th century British playwright and poet George Saville Carey (1743-1807) is printed below the image; see full text below. N° de ref. de la librería 000149

Descripción de la librería

George Glazer opened his art and antiques gallery in 1993, and since the beginning the emphasis has been on the themes of exploration and discovery as embodied by globes, prints, maps and art. The gallery's unusual ambiance reflects its owner -- scholarly and intellectual, but with an eye for the decorative and a sense of humor that revels in the offbeat. Featured items include: Antique World Globes -- huge selection; floor and table, terrestrial and celestial, orrerys and armillary spheres. Maps - - 19th C. American maps and atlases; celestial charts. Prints and Paintings -- botanical, bird, sporting, maritime, fashion and costume, architectural and horses. Books -- leather and colorplate.
