Volume one contains two jestbooks, "A Hundred Merry Tales" and "Tales and Quick Answers" which were published as part of a jestbook collection edited by P. M. Zall in 1963.
Volume two contains six jestbooks -- "Merie Tales of Master Skelton" (which is also in Zall's collection), "Jests of Scogin", "Sackfull of Newes", "Tarlton's Jests", "Merie Conceited Jests of George Peele" and "Jacke of Dover".
Volume three, the book offered for sale here, contains seven works -- "Merie Tales of the Mad Men of Gotham" (a collection of "dumb guy" jokes analogous to the Jewish tales of the "wise men of Chelm"), "Merie Tales of the Widow Edith" (Edith is a sort of grifter with a hard-luck story), "Pasquil's Jests and Mother Bunch's Merriments" (Mother Bunch, as described, sounds a bit like Paul Bunyan), "Pleasant Conceits of Old Hobson" (apparently based upon a real-life "Merry Londoner"), "Certain Conceits and Jests", "Taylor's Wit and Mirth", a personal collection of anecdotes by author John Taylor, and "Conceits, Clinches, Flashes and Whimsies".
Of particular interest to me were the tales and jokes which would resonate with the modern reader. "Mad Men of Gotham" contains a number of these, including jokes which aficianados of Vaudeville, early TV/radio or Looney Tunes would recognize:
Priest: Repeat after me--
Nervous Bridegroom: After me--
Priest: No, no, repeat what I'm ABOUT to say...
NB: No, no, repeat what I'm ABOUT to say...
I'm very glad Bibliobazaar and other publishers are making otherwise out-of-print materials available to consumers.
