Dickens' fake books!

Quote:
When Charles Dickens moved into Tavistock House in 1851, he decided to fill two spaces in his new study with bookcases containing fake books, the witty titles of which he had invented. And so, on October 22nd, he wrote to a bookbinder named Thomas Robert Eeles and supplied him with the following "list of imitation book-backs" to be produced.
Lists of Note: The Fake Books of Charles Dickens

Kant's Ancient Humbugs sounds right up my alley. Or perhaps Drowsy's Recollections of Nothing.

This is my favourite Charles Dickens quote

"Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pound ought and six, result misery."

I just it sums up exactly what is happening in the world right now!
