Reader's note

Country House Library is proud to present this beautiful and rare antique jewel! This book is a compilation of various amusing anecdotes and short stories. Are they true or not? This doesn't really matter as they are all entertaining! The following is called 'Stage Trickery' - In a little town in Germany, the directors of the theatre, seeking to draw a house, advertised, that in a melodrama that was to be performed, they would exhibit the head of a noted robber. In order to effect this, one of the actors was placed in such a manner, that the head alone was exhibited upon the table; but a wag wishing to raise a laugh at the expense of the manager, slyly placed a small quantity of sneezing-powder in such a manner that it came in contact with the nose of the reputed robber's head, and caused it to burst into a violent fit of sneezing, to the great amusement of the audience!' - Still amusing to this day! A truly unique find!
