This comic masterpiece has been hugely influential since its first publication in 1892.

Proud to be ensconced with his wife Carrie at 'The Laurels' in the desirable London suburb of Holloway, bank clerk Charles Pooter decides to keep a diary. From the frequent visits from his dear friends Mr Cummings and Mr Gowing to the ups and downs of his feckless son Lupin, the self-regarding Mr Pooter considers, mistakenly, that all aspects of his life are worthy of note. The result is a hilarious spoof and a perfectly pitched satire on late Victorian society.

Featuring Weedon Grossmith's droll original illustrations, this handy edition is part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. Afterword by novelist Paul Bailey.
