This is one of ‘Carr’s Pocket Books’ a series of poets, writers, engravers and dictionaries. These books hover between a greeting and a present. 16 pages long, they fit a common envelope and in cold bedrooms only one hand to the wrist need suffer exposure. A distinguished novelist recommends them for reading in the bath. An ambassador, albeit American, claims they can be palmed from the cuff during tedious speeches and profitless sermons.
