"Collegers v. Oppidans" : a reminiscence of Eton life

Eton: R.I. Drake ; London: Simpkin, Marshall (1884). 84pp. sm 8vo.

Item #7576

Eton tales, revolving around the exploits of a boy named "Jickling." The attribution of this small book is unclear- there is a penciled notation in this copy (Oliver Brett's) that the author was E.C. Grenville-Murray, but most others attribute it to W. H. Tucker.

A very good copy in Eton blue boards, bookplate of Oliver Brett (3d Viscount of Esher) on front pastedown, his pencilled signature on endpaper, and his ownership ink stamp on front half-title. In addition, there is a bookplate of John Baker on endpaper.
