Jolly Jokers
Of The Town of Johns and Cambria County Cut-ups

by William Arnold Jacobs, 1907

 This book measures 12 7/8" x 9 1/2" and has 110 pages. It was printed on Japan Vellum with TEG. Although unsigned, the title page, colophon and initials appear to be the work of Dard Hunter and are really the same as those contained in White Hyacinths. In the authors proof of David Ogle's and Dick Blacher's book "On a High Shelf" this is noted to be the only known copy of this book. Of course if someone has one of these I am always in the market for a copy. The slip case seen in the last picture was made by Stephen Modiano using original marbled Roycroft paper.
