Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Excerpt from Phœnixiana: Or, Sketches and Burlesques "In the Name of the Prophet - Figs!" - John Phœnix chose better than he knew when, at its first publication in 1855, he graced the title-page of his incomparable Phœnixiana with this legend. It is so truly descriptive of the quality of the repast which he places before us in the sequence of pages so fruitful of the best of fun, that after all any more deeply critical estimate of his permanent value as a caterer to our risibles would seem superfluous. One does not gather figs from thistles, and I am inclined to think that if this tree that is still putting forth leaves to-day had not produced good fruit in the long ago, we should not, a half century after, find anyone hardy enough to stand sponsor for it in an age that is by no means lacking in fruit-trees of its own.
