Chicago: Brothers of the Book, 1912.
First edition. 12mo. Original publisher's calf-backed, marbled paper covered boards, paper label on cover. Woodcut designs. Colophon state that the book is a reprint of a certain hoax perpetrated on a time by one Kendall Banning... With an interesting "Addenda" attached to rear (a printed addenda by LCW, Woodworth, founder of the press), "The writer of the 'explanation' accepted Mr. Banning's statement that the original of this reprint was a hoax. Since the book went to press, however, several of Mr. Bannning's friends have written in vigourous protest..." Quite an interesting fracas, indeed. Scarce. Near fine.
