by Simon Durst, 1902
This book measures approximately 5" x 9" is suede bound and has 75 deckle edged pages. It was published in 1902 by the Woonsocket Publishing Company of Woonsocket Rhode Island and is the second book in a series. The first book, published in 1901, was Rhapsodies of Poeticus Hungricus - Starvation. It was at the very least bound by the Roycroft Shops. It has the Roycroft Orb embossed just below the title and is a Roycroft binding and probably printing. Although it lists the edition as being a print run of 1200 it seems to be somewhat uncommon. I have only seen three or four other copies of this book. This book is not listed in McKenna.
