Product Description

A Satire based on text from Francis Grose’s “Olio”, wherein an old lady is standing supported with a stick, a bunch of keys at her waist and open on the table a book – “Domestic Medicines”. The moral being that every man has within his family an old lady of this type, although “but alas this being is no more to be seen, and her race like that of the black rat is totally extinct!”. Not in George, but a copy acquire3d by the British Museum in 1985.
