Subject: A Holiday Hoot
Published in 1850 with a title page attribution to "Luke Limner", this book was written by John Leighton (1822-1912).
Follow the antics of the Brown household from holiday preparation
"With these articles Mr. Brown and his retinue reach home in safety--a miracle, considering the toast and ale they have consumed,--the Holly being jolly, the Bason groggy, the Log stupid, and the Boar pig-headed."
"Had the sea-serpent been discovered in the back pond, a gold-mine been found in the dust-bin, or a Sphinx and Centaur been captured in Lincoln’s Inn Fields, Mr. Brown could not have been more astounded!"
