THE

MAN ABOUT TOWN.

BY

CORNELIUS WEBBE,

AUTHOR OF " GLANCES AT LIF B," ETC.

15. Your counsel,' quoth Panurge, 'under your correction and favour, seemeth
anto me not unlike to the song of Gammer Yea-by-Nay. It is full of sarcasms,
mockqueries, bitter taunts, nipping bobs, derisive quips, biting jerks, and con-
iradictory iterations, the one part destr ying the other."-RABELAIS.

" I, too, am in love with this green Earth-the face of Town and country-
the unspeakable rural Solitudes, and the sweet security of Streets."

IN TWO VOLUMES.

VOL. I.
