Reminiscences of a trip to Wickford by a Calumeta

Providence: F. H. Townsend, 1889. First edition limited to 50 copies of which this is an unnumbered out of series copy, 4to, 17 leaves; self-wrappers printed in red and black, text printed on rectos only; paper quite brittle, covers separated but present. A scarce example of a fragile but still attractive work. Most likely published for the anonymous author's friends, as the Preface states: "Lest by chance the too tender sensibilities of any reader should be unwittingly wounded by what he might construe as personal illusions, the writer of the following sketch desires to state that while the scenes are real the characters are purely mythical." Ocean State Libraries only holding in OCLC as of July, 2014. Item #45842
