Chicago, IL: Holiday (Lakeside) Press, 1927. Ervine Meizl. First Edition. 6.0" x 5.5" book with red cloth boards and blue binding. Rubbing to extremities -- edges and corners.

Whimsical lampoon involving the particular lexicon and phraseology then-common to an advertising agency. A collaborative effort by an artist, compositor, pressman, engraver, bookbinder, a bibliopegist (same thing?!) art director, technician, and typographer. Very Good Minus. Item #74409
