Descripción London: J.S. Jordan, 1792. 8vo., 59 + (1)pp., wanting the half-title, some minor foxing, final advertisement page soiled, Wigan Free Public Library bookplate> on front pastedown, well bound in early 20th century cloth, sometime rebacked, spine gilt lettered, uncut. A very good copy. First edition: uncommon. A marvellous collection of Parliamentary anecdotes by a long-standing and astute House of Commons servant. It is a short encyclopaedia of wry, amusing and perceptive observations on House of Commons traditions and proceedings and on the eccentric by-ways and arcane bits and pieces of Commons' life. Thus, for example: 'ALICE'S - A coffee-house, frequented by the Members for soups,> which Bellamy can't make, and other refreshments,> while Burke is speaking . CUPBOARD. - A snug place for keeping a sup> and a bit> in, on long debates. - My late partner, Barwell,> often got at my bottle. I never meddled with his tobacco. GUINEA TRADE. - W. Wilberforce> may talk against it as much as he pleases; but, for my part, it is the best trade going. I have been in it a great many years, and will never agree either to an immediate> or a gradual> abolition of it. Not that I have had my losses in the Guinea Trade as well as others. . SANDWICHES. - Two small slices of bread and butter, almost transparent, with a thin piece of stale ham, or beef, between them, and used to keep the people in the gallery from famishing, from eleven o'clock, till six the next morning. - N.B. Bellamy charges a shilling for them, and they don't stand him in above two pence. . DRYBUTTER. - The name of a woman attending the Lobby with oranges, who knows more of the Members private> affairs than all the old bawds in Christendom put together'. Nº de ref. de la librería 26409
