Rompopo Rompopo Presents Levitatia 8th Wonder of the World
NA. Very Good. Unpublished, but with a touch of editing, a publishable level original illustrated story of a levitating circus act. Oblong, 26 by 38 cm. 21 leaves, with pen-and-ink drawings on most pages (rectos and versos) and original accompanying text. Rompopo is the producer of a small traveling circus whose chief attraction is Levitatia, or Mildred, who has the amazing ability to fly until she puts on too much weight because the coachman who is in love with her has been spoiling her with candies. When she falls is love with a loyal spectator Pastrami, Rompopo chases the young man away. Disconsolate, Levitatia soon sheds the excess weight, allowing her to fly better than ever and become an even bigger sensation. The story ends with her flying to Pastrami, leaving Rompopo in the lurch. The illustrations bring to mind Edward Gorey and other slightly surreal illustrators. As well done as everything about this work is, we do not know who wrote and illustrated the story.
