On offer is a charming brace of poems circa late 18th or early 19th century ephemera. On a folio sheet folded is an antique handwritten poem in an unknown hand credited to Captain Thompson [Edward, b. 1738? - 1786] titled: 'The Choice of a Wife By Cheese' about a man in York named Pimlico who put to Nancy, Betsey and Sally the task of making cheese and thereupon he chose his wife. This poem in neat hand takes up three-quarters of the page. A shorter poem described as an inscription above a doctor's door in Sussex fills the page. The names Mr. Longden and Wm. Mitchell are on the reverse. Lovely piece of British ephemera. VG.
