Sinopsis
Excerpt from Edgar Chirrup

A meandering foreword, introducing the name of Mr. Leo Brandish. Followed by a slight sketch of a great man.

Hen Mr. Leo Brandish writes the biography of Edgar Chirrup, as he hopes to do after the death of his old friend, he will be confronted with several difficulties.

Firstly, will it be possible to collect enough copy for a handsome volume, Demy 8vo, cloth gilt, fully illustrated, for Brandish has set his heart on this style of book? Secondly, are there the elements of romance in Chirrups career that will make it a popular success? Thirdly, will the struggles and cares of a man of mirth appeal to the patrons of circulating libraries? Fourthly, will the peculiar personality - charm is not too strong a word - of Chirrup die with him? Fifthly, will he be forgotten altogether before Leo Brandish can get his book upon the market?

All these difficulties could be overcome by the publication of the biography during the lifetime of the subject, but Mr. Chirrup will not consent. He considers that the appearance of three little books at a shilling apiece A Few of my Chirps, by Chirrup, Edgar Chirrup, Actor, by Himself, and Stagey Stories, by E. C. - are more than enough to satisfy a public that never asked for them. Not that he fears Brandishs important book would affect the sale of these small attempts. Mr. Chirrup did not write a line himself, or receive a pennys profit, but he dictated them and his friend reaped the benefit.
