New York: Burgess, Stringer, & Co., . First Edition BAL 3282. The clothbound issue rebound in contemporary half black morocco. Edited by the Philadelphia journalist Clark's twin brother and co-editor of the Knickerbocker Magazine, Lewis, predating Lewis's first book by eight years. Includes articles on cats, snake eating, ballooning, and observations of life in general: "It is astonishing how many stupid people you meet in society; fellows with brains in their purses, who will talk you an infinite deal of nothing, and thus beget a reputation of being remarkably fluent and agreeable persons.... A great many young men imagine that any thing can be said to a woman in the way of nonsense, and relished to boot." This a sampling from just one of the 480 pages. Gordon-Nash 1895 library bookplate, pocket, and blindstamps. Some foxing. Very Good (Item ID: 004000)
