Quick Reference

A satirical book of manners by Dekker, published 1609.

It is an attack on the fops and gallants of the day under the guise of ironical instructions how they may make themselves conspicuous in places of public resort by their offensive conduct. It is a parody of the courtesy books of the period, and was suggested by a German original, a burlesque by F. Dedekind (1549).
