Unit Library Ltd 1903 Hardback without dust wrapper Good 
Some overall wear. Covers sun-darkened. 118pp including notes. Sir Roger de Coverley was the name of a character in The Spectator (1711). An English squire of Queen Anne's reign, Sir Roger exemplified the values of an old country gentleman, and was portrayed as lovable but somewhat ridiculous ('rather beloved than esteemed') (Spectator no. 2), making his Tory politics seem harmless but silly. He was said to be the grandson of the man who invented the dance. 741056

For all in scorn of the wintry weather,
And heedless quite of the howling storm,
My books and I are alone together.
