DOUGLAS, Norman. Some Limericks : Collected for the use of Students, & ensplendourd'd with Introductino, Geographical Index, and with Notes Explanatory and Critical.

One thousand copies of this edition were printed by The Brownbent Press, Boston, Mass. This is copy No. 000057. "He must be a quintessential fool who does not realize that the following fifty limericks are a document of enduring value. And I beg leave to say that the collection has been made not for such people, butfor those who can appreciate its significance. I may be abused on the grou nd that the pieces are course, obscene, and so forth. Why, so they are; andwhoever suffers from that trying form of degeneracy which is horrified at coarseness had better close the book at once and send it back to me." - from Douglas's introduction. Very good in spine-browned dust jacket. 25.00
