The Cynic's Rules of Conduct by Chester Field, Jr. 1905


This 6" x 4.5 " book was first published in 1905. It contains "cynical" pithy aphorisms related to conduct.

It was printed in two formats: A cloth book with a dust jacket (which has not been seen) for 50 cents and a boxed ooze calf book which sold for $1.00.

This title became part of the Jester life Series in 1909. The dust jacket changed in 1909 but the book itself did not.

The ooze calf book was printed until 1909.
