A Century of Suggestions Addressed to the Sleepy, by One of Themselves

Good. Item #6022

[London]: Mountcastle's Library, [1858]. First Edition. Octavo. Removed. 51 pages. Moderately soiled and worn; a good, sound copy.

A mildly eccentric work, offering 100 suggestions for reform, a paragraph or two dedicated to each. Much dedicated to enlightened methods of industrial production (repealing the malt-tax to reduce drunkenness), political reform ('Australia is also surpassing us in novelty of Legislation: Melbourne has adopted the ballot,') and, most vehemently, a more focused approach to domestic swine production...

"With the numerous Chaw-Bacons of England as constant customers, a ready-made home-market would be found... indeed every House-wife knows that in these days Bacon is Bacon!

"To pursue the enrapturing subject, how prolific is the Sow ! how soon does the Porker come to perfection ! how hard does he work to get fat ! Really he is quite a 'man of business !'"

Indeed. None in retail at time of this writing.
