Jerome, Jerome K.: Idle Ideas in 1905 (Illustrated). v1. 28 June 2012
This is an illustrated version of “Idle Ideas in 1905.” The non-illustrated edition was previously uploaded to MobileRead in May 2012.
By the author of “Three Men in a Boat,” “Three Men on the Bummel,” “Diary of a Pilgrimage,” “Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow,” “Stage-Land,” “Paul Kelver,” etc.
Published 1904 / 1905.
Here is another collection of essays from that Idle Fellow. Jerome offers his opinions on music and literature, does a bit of traveling, and takes some wryly humorous looks at social and political issues of the day — many of the points discussed still ring true today, more than a century later.
Twenty of the twenty-one pieces in this collection first appeared in the 1904 collection “American Wives and Others” under different titles. (That edition included five additional pieces that later appeared in “The Angel and the Author — and Others”). The illustrations in this compilation are taken from “American Wives and Others.”
73 illustrations, most are half-page, all are centered. Small drop-caps.
