This little gem of a book presents a set of essays that were printed in the "Spectator" back in the early 1700s. They bring the reader into the society of a fine old country gentleman, Sir Roger de Coverley, and many of his acquaintances. It paints a picture of one part of English life in those days and I enjoyed visiting it very much. ( )

I am not sure that this is the same book and call number listed in this citation, as it has no indication of the author's name; only that their are "questions" that are asked by a Homer K. Underwood, head of English at High School, Passaic, N.J.

This was a textbook from my great-uncle's day. The papers were meant as witty moral observations, in fiction form, of the people and events of the Queen Anne era. Also added to this textbook were many notes and observations about the people, places and events of the time. An entertaining way to learn history. ( )
