Reader's note

The humour of W. W. Jacobs is in the masculine English tradition which immortalizes the comic characters of Shakespeare, Dickens, and the Grossmiths. Of the stories in this volume, fourteen are concerned with the wharf-side life he knew so well in the London of four-wheelers, music halls, magic lantern shows, and threepenny beer in the Mile End Road. The night-watchman has a fund of tales about the adventures of Sam Small, Ginger Dick, and Peter Russet, who generally share a room in a seaman’s lodging house when they come ashore with pockets full of money. This vintage book would make a delightful addition to any library.
