Publisher's Synopsis

Excerpt from The Humbugs of the World: An Account of Humbugs, Delusions, Impositions, Quackeries, Deceits and Deceivers, Generally, in All Ages

Messrs. Cauldwell and Whitney of the Weekly Mercury caused me to furnish for that paper a series of articles in which I very natu rally took up the subject in question. This book is a revision and re-arrangement of a portion of those articles. If I should find that I have met a popular demand, I shall in due time put forth a second volume. There is not the least danger of a dearth of materials.
