Rhapsodies of Poeticus Hungricus - Starvation
by Simon Durst, 1901
This book measures approximately 8" x 6" is suede bound and has deckle edged pages. It was published in 1901 by the Woonsocket Publishing Company of Woonsocket Rhode Island and is the first book in a series. The second book, published in 1902, was In Dreams. It is believed to have been bound by the Roycroft Shops and probably printed by the Roycroft. Although it lists the edition as being a print run of 1200 it seems to be somewhat uncommon. I have only seen one other copy of this book. This book is not listed in McKenna.
