142 pages; Clean and tight in original cloth binding in edgeworn dustajcekt with some chipping. OCLC: 3250575 This book transcribes an old hand-written manuscript found in the library of a collector. Councellor Manners, discovering death at hand, calls to his bedside his only son. With frankness and humor the gentleman discusses a wide range of subjects pertaining to manners and morals. Written in the English of the early 17th century, in epigrammatic style, this last legacy of a wealthy nobleman to his son smacks more of witty discourse than of weighty admonitions, and seems surprisingly apropos even today. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
