Boards in laid paper wraps, very good w/ bit of wear to wraps at spine, ink stamp inside(Pony Express Museum, S.F.) and a few words in pencil inside front board. 12p., the finest printing, press work in America in 1928, devoted to this risible bit of literary humor, hoaxing. From the Prolegomenon: The subject of Professor Bissenschwitz's editorial labors is a short essay of a non-scholarly nature by Professor the reader will remember, the Doctor and Professor Niesenwurzel came to have a serious controversy. Doctor Bissenschwitz had noted the phenomenon that so many effeminate youths were called "Percy" and "Harold". This struck him as as very strange, for, as a matter of history, he knew that "Percy" and "Harold" were once the names of the very bravest and manliest. Text begins w/ epigraph from Hamlet, I am mad but north-north-west. Then: A scientist has calculated that, if left to spawn unchecked, in only a few thousand generations the most minute animalcule could fill the whole earth, and indeed, the entire universe. I wonder no one has yet made this observation about books. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 004096
