Vice Verse

by Hill De (pseudonym?)

Condition: Good/No Jacket

New York: The Imp Press, 1930. 1930 First Edition. GOOD hardcover; no jacket. A collection of short, ribald verses, each accompanied with a delightful 2-color drawing by cartoonist and painter Howard Baer (~1906-1986). Pages are very good - occasional marginal light soil markings. Previous owner name written on front pasted endpaper, no other markings. Bound in hardcover of yellow cloth titled in black on front and spine and with a red line illustration on front. Cover is soiled and toned with tears and old tape residue along bottom half of spine and hinges, bump to top edge of front board. Binding tender but intact. Definitely oddball! 6 x 9-1/4". 64 pages. First Edition. Hard Cover. Good/No Jacket. Illus. by Baer, Howard.
