First edition. George Routledge. London. n.d. [1867 – source Getty Research Institute] vi, 138pp. Contemporary green half morocco, marbled boards, gilt to spine. Bound by Walker and Son, Plymouth. All edges sprinkled red. Light toning to endpapers.

George Rose (1817-1882) a former curate in Camberwell, London. After leaving the Church of England in 1855, Rose underwent a major career change and began to write under the pseudonym Arthur Sketchley.

His fictitious character Mrs. Brown's monologues became a major success. Rose's creation was from a working class background and addressed the current topics of the day in a humorous and colloquial fashion.
