ARCHYOLOGY II : (The Final Dig) : The Long Lost Tales of Archy and Mehitabel

By Marquis, Don; (Jeff Adams, Editor & Preface)

Hanover, NH: Univ Press of New England, 1998. EX-LIB/UNCIRCULATED COPY. First Edition, First Printing. Text/BRAND NEW. Bi-color boards/NF. DJ/NF; under library mylar. Loan-pocket to rear cover verso. Humours & witty fable. 2nd and final volume "composed" by Detective Cockroach Archy, the literary cockroach, of his and his feline friend, Mehitabel, adventures. Posthumously published work of journalist, raconteur, humorist and author Don Marquis (1878 - 1937), literally recovered from a steamer trunk, illustrated by New Yorker cartoonist Ed Frascino. Archy, we are told, worked at Marquis's newsroom typewriter at night, diving headfirst onto individual keys to tap out columns; shift keys difficult, he favored lower-case less punctuation. Typing disadvantages aside, were there advantages of being a coackroach? Well, as he said, Archy was able "... to see things from the under side." From this unque perspective we follow the continuing saga of this most interesting creature in encounters with a raja, Bolshevist twins, an Egyptologist, seven sister manicurists, besides saving the US fleet from a German U-boat attack, witnessing growing strength of the Ku Klux Klan had him worried that the national emblem will soon be the "great american kleagle." Meanwhile, Mehitabel, who claims to be a reincarnation of Cleopatra, offers to hire hit-cats to clean up City Hall, not of rats but of reporters --- purr-fect solution for Trump? Indeed, book as Jeff Adams says, is of "classic American humor, as vivid and amusing today as they were decades ago." Strong copy. . First Edition, First Printing. Hard Cover. NEAR FINE/Fine. Illus. by Ed Frascino (Illustrator).
