Description
 
A humorous story of Master Jack and his adventures around the holiday. Master Jack is a rambunctious, mischievous, young spoiled boy, who often, in his attempts to alleviate his boredom around the holidays, creates all sorts of trouble for his parents, sisters, and indulgent servants. For example, while playing with a new toy theater he received, he creates a "terrific explosion in the Housekeepers room". In another scene, when he was "privileged to leave the dining room with the ladies" he promptly takes "an undue advantage of his delightful position" by stealing a kiss from a lady. This book can be acted out as a play, as there is a list of characters or "Persons Represented" in the beginning. 12 pages. Engraving with hand finishing. Linen backed. Measures 10 3/4" x 7 1/4".
