[Cadmus, KS: Ed. Blair, 1901]. First Edition. Octavo (19.5cm); original blue pictorial cloth embossed in gilt; viii,194pp.; photographic portrait frontispiece adorned with line drawing, two text illus. Upper fore-edge corners of both boards have been bumped, minor soil, else Very Good and sound. Collection of Kansas slang poetry, most of which first appeared in 1899-1901 in the agricultural magazine The American Thresherman (the printer of this collection). Blair was (perhaps self-) described as the "James Whitcomb Riley of Kansas," (see his History of Johnson County, Kansas (1915), p. 310), though we think he's more of a Kansan William Pinkney Ewing. (Inventory #: 30341)
