Doesticks. What he says. By Q. K. Doesticks, P. B.

New York: Edward Livermore, 1855. First edition, 8vo, pp. xii, [1], 13-330; wood-engraved frontispiece, 7 wood-engraved plates (in the pagination); original brown cloth, pictorial gilt spine; bottom of spine slightly chipped, extremities a little rubbed, all else very good. These sketches were first published mostly in the New York Tribune, where Thomson was a reporter for most of his career. His social satire and parody, published under the "Doesticks" pseudonym, was wildly popular. For a short time in the 1870s, Thomson was an associate editor of the Minneapolis Tribune. "Q. K. Philander Doesticks, P. B.", was a pseudonym he had first used at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, the full version being "Queer Kritter Philander Doesticks, Perfect Brick." BAL 20091; Wright II, 2493. Item #57920
