This book contains William Thackeray s 1838 novel, "The Yellowplush Papers." Written in what was supposed to be a footman's version of English, this book tells the story of Charles J. Yellowplush's different masters: one of whom sweeps a street crossing - and the other is an astute nobleman who gets ensnared in a very clever matrimonial trap set by his own father. A fantastic novel characteristic of Thackeray s masterful writing ability, "The Yellowplush Papers" is highly recommended for fans and collectors of his work, and would make for a worthy addition to any bookshelf.
