An examination of the manner and customs of Cheltenham, England, but also a whimsical portrait of the types of high society characters observed by the author. There is much on issues of taste, wine connoisseurship, and even a description of the "Servants' Swarry". Some light soil to a few leaves; spine slightly cocked. In publisher's brown cloth, blind- and gilt-titled and decorated; cloth soiled and a bit rubbed. Good or a bit better. [OCLC locates seventeen copies].
