Post Thackeray, William Makepeace: The Book of Snobs. v1, 12 May 2008

Classic satire from Thackeray, in which he describes all the different types of "snobs" to be found in 19th century society. It was this work which led to the wide-spread use of the word "snob" in the English language.

A very funny book - well worth reading.

Enjoy!

Thank you. I read some quotes from this many years ago but never found it when I looked for it (very limited resources at the time and a rather small library where I lived then.) When I had funds I had "other" things to do with the funds. If my memory is correct it is, as you said, very funny.
