Chapbooks of the eighteenth century (1882)

Wonderful book offering facsimiles of hundreds of 18th century chapbooks upon a huge range of subjects - from tragic tales of revenge and murder to guides for interpreting dreams and moles - and the exquisite illustrative woodcuts which would often accompany the text. Included in this compilation is an informative introduction by John Ashton on the chapbook phenomenon, with additional commentary on some of the works.
