Review copy

Snarl of a cynic: a rhyme

Ephrata Lan. Co., PA: P. Martin Heitler, 1868. First edition, likely a review copy; 24mo, pp. 40; original yellow printed boards backed in black cloth, 2 printed review copy slips mounted on inside front cover, accompanied by envelope addressed to the editor of the "Philadelphia Evening Bulletin" from the publisher. Light offsetting on title page and soiling to covers, near fine. In the "printer's introduction" Heitler declares himself a small country printer interested in introducing readers to the work of a member of the Pennsylvania Dutch, and says that he has had to suppress eleven stanzas. The author describes himself on the title page as "a Pennsylvania Teuton." This is his first and apparently only book. Item #56310
