|The Diary of Mr Charles Pooter|
MPH has shipped in some vintage classic books and this was bought for RM 29.90 a few weeks ago. Written by George and Weedon Grossmith originally for the famous magazine Punch this was eventually expanded into a novel. The illustrations by Weedon re just the type I love. I've taken a picture of a "Daisy Mutlar" who was transiently Lupin's fiancee in this story. Lupin is the son of the Mr Charles Pooter who is the author of the diary. Lupin has funny ideas and loses his job at least twice in this story but my typing this hardly begins to be justice to the actual words.
