About This Item

The Diary of a Nobody is an English comic novel written by the brothers George and Weedon Grossmith, with illustrations by the latter. It originated as an intermittent serial in Punch magazine in 1888–89 and first appeared in book form, with extended text and added illustrations, in 1892. The Diary records the daily events in the lives of a London clerk, Charles Pooter, his wife Carrie, his son William Lupin, and numerous friends and acquaintances over a period of 15 months.

The Folio Society first published it in 1969, then went on to reprint it. This is a copy of the 11th printing, dated 1996.

It is mustard boards with both covers illustrated and there are illustrations on nearly every page--the original illustrations by Weedon.

It comes in a green slipcase.

165 pages; lovely thick paper.

It is in absolutely mint condition and has never been read. Tight in the slipcase; uncracked spine.


Pristine.
