Pamphlet. Brand New. 9780893148263

An authentic collection of classical humor, the anecdotes and witticisms mostly date before the beginning of the Christian Era, yet many of them refer to situations and conditions the world faces at the present time. Even the wise of ancient days were fully aware of the frailties of human nature, and wisdom still helps us to live with our own foolishness. Included are a number of old engravings of the persons discussed in the work.
