Overview

Would you like to go to a penny gaff with a scammered moll? Give me a half-tusheroon from your mollsack, and then we can have an ‘aipenny bumper. Are you still a booze-shunter or have you become one of those balloon juice lowerers? Did you hear about the spunk faker who got batty fanged by a pudding scammerer? Look at that marm-puss in an arse-cooler, the one walking past the muffin-walloper: I’ll bet she tips the velvet. And don’t forget - if you don’t want to visit the carsey you can always have a bit of cockney luxury.

If you understand what’s being said above, you don’t need to buy Spunk Fakers, Slap Bangs and Tipping the Velvet – you obviously speak like a Victorian Londoner already. However, if you want to understand the strange world of Victorian slang, Spunk Fakers, Slap Bangs and Tipping the Velvet will introduce you to some of the more ear-catching words found in the everyday speech of 19th century Londoners.

Whether you are an ‘appy dosser, a bumaree, a fingersmith or a mush-fencer, I’ll wager my beaver that this book will give you some of the words you need when you talk to a bangtail or a blower.

    Fun but flawed

    Interesting and colorful, this book might come in handy for writers of historical fiction, or those who enjoy language. However, a fair number of entries refer one to another definition, and paging back and forth is inconvenient. Also many definitions have been partially or completely redacted! The sample only goes to the list of definitions and not the words themselves, so one cannot tell what the actual book is like. Still for less than $5, the glimpse into history is entertaining.
