    From front flap: "He writes of the evolution of humour from the earliest ages through the stages of practical joking to wit, comparing the different parts of humour, from that of the tavern to that of the palace. He examines the pun, the satire, the 'dirty' story, the quip, and others, and shows us how they came to be there. He advances amusing theories as, for instance, on the subject of 'super-comic poetry' where the author is funny by accident."
