Novel Nomenclature



Essay, Drollery


Publishing, Evolution, Natural History, Travel, Quackery

    Lamenting the paucity of compelling titles in the 'literary world', Punch has decided that 'the art wants a little new life putting into it' and makes several suggestions for works of 'General Interest', 'Travels', 'Novels', and 'Miscellaneous'. These include 'Professor Gorilla, On the Jaw Bone of an Ass' and 'Chaillu? Or shall you not?—An African Romance'.
