Book - 'Military Misreadings of Shakspere'


From the deliberate, but delightful, misspelling of Shakespeare in the title to the carefully portrayed perils of being a Victorian soldier and the appropriately selected Shakespearian quotes to go alongside each cartoon, Thomas Seccombe’s book will resonate with all who have an interest in observing life – military and otherwise. First published in 1880, the book was so popular that it went on to six immediate reprints. Even today’s readers will see why this classic book was such a success. Ideal for all occasions and a perfect stocking filler.
