New York: Privately printed 1928. New York: Privately printed, 1928.. Small folio. Boards, with printed spine label. Lithographed frontis portrait by Rockwell Kent, signed in pencil by him in the lower margin. Spine and lower board slightly darkened, else very good or better in later slipcase. First edition. The rare first printing of this mildly ribald satirical poem about Rockwell Kent, enhanced by the lithographed portrait by Kent of the author. One of an intended edition of one hundred copies privately printed by Crosby Gaige and Frederic Warde. However, the first printing was so riddled with typographical errors that it was abandoned, and a corrected printing of eighty- five copies was subsequently undertaken and published in 1930. OCLC/Worldcat locates three copies of this printing: Johns Hopkins, UT/HRC and SUNY at Plattsburgh. Among the rarest of Kent-related items. STANLEY (GROLIER) 25. JONES 30.
