How many jokes do you know that are over 200 years old? Jest or joke books were very popular during the 17th century but have remained in print to the present. This is copied from an original in a private collection. Much can be learned about the people of the 18th century by reading their jokes. Consistent with the values of the times many of the jokes in this book are bawdy.
