UNIFORM WITH THIS VOLUME.
THE LIFE OF
A PRIG. .
PRESS NOTICES. " The cleverness with which the advance of the Prig's ideas is showri as the natural development of his absurd character, the course which just such a Prig would be apt to run, is not the least of the literary merits of one of the smartest little books of the season. -N, Y. Tribune.
“ It would be difficult to give an adequate idea of the artistic finish and really exquisite quality of The Life of a Prig. The type is as happily chosen as Thackeray's snob, the ridicule is quite as deserved, the satire is as keen and effective, and the conception is fresher and more original.
Some of the acutest and wittiest satire of recent years. The autobiographical imparts a peculiar relish that is distinctly precious. –N. 7. Commercial.
“This racy biography deserves a „place among the clever satires of the foibles of the age.'' - The Critic.
“A bright and amusing satire, more effective than a volume of arguments. I'he Hits are hard, the moral is not to be missed, the common sense is positively brilliant. No prig. could have imagined so clever a thing, and calling it an autobiography is one of the bright touches.''- Boston Advertiser.
“No summary can give an adequate idea of this naughty satire."'- The Nation.
