Charades, Conundrums & Enigmas from the 1800s chosen by Julie C Harris
During the Victorian Period (1937-1901) many families spent evenings in their parlors amusing one another with books, puzzles, toys, charades, conundrums, and enigmas. We hope you enjoy this classic sampling of word puzzles with your own family, with others, or just by yourself. Answers included in the back of the book.
" The collection as a whole will afford innocent recreation for the fireside and social circle, and thus contribute to the happiness of those who enjoy the higher forms of pleasure that flow from the exercise of the mind upon those subjects that require quickness of thought and a nimble wit. The Author" (1893 publication.)
