History of humour,
This review is from: The Oxford Book of Humorous Prose: From William Caxton to P.G.Wodehouse - A Conducted Tour (Hardcover)
I knew this would be good as it is by Frank Muir. It is fascinating to see how humour has developed from the time of Caxton, and his own writing is quite academic, commenting on and explaining the different samples.
