From the cover: “The main feature of the book is an introductory essay on homonyms, on puns, on Shakespeare’s unblushing use of them, on the graphic puns of heraldry, and on other allied subjects. This, supported by the many examples, will go far to shed light into ungrammatical and confused minds, and will entertain them in their pursuit of knowledge.”
