Titel: Cambridge Street Literature.
Verlag: Oleander Press, Cambridge, first edition, 1978
Einband: Soft cover
Illustrated laminated wrappers, 8vo, 64 pp, many ills. From the blurb: " 'The grand town of all London in miniature' was how a patterer, or seller of broadsheets, described Cambridge in 1849, and that may be what he thought of his brisk trade there, but hitherto very little has been published on the cocks and catchpennies, almanacs and chapbooks, posters and playbills which formed the principal reading matter of the people of .Cambridge before the Education Act of 1870. The present study aims to offer a comprehensive, if necessarily brief, survey of the types of popular Street literature from the earliest almanack recorded at Cambridge to the latest folk festival poster at the Corn Exchange, with illustrations."
