The Steamboat is a collection of stories ostensibly told to a Glasgow cloth merchant, Mr. Duffle, by fellow passengers during trips down the Clyde and to London and back. The centrepiece is a highly irreverent account of the coronation of George IV.

Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
