Small House of Everything

Samuel O. Beeton, a well-known publisher and editor of the 19th century, passed away in 1861.  Yesterday I happened to be looking through early copies of Beeton's Christmas Annual and came across a long elegy of the man, praising him above all others and placing him on a pedestal at least twenty miles high.  Sadly for Mr. Beeton's memory though, this was the title:

                                                            IN MEMORIAM

     Oh. well...
