8vo. 21 by 17 cm. 26 pp., including cover -- possibly lacking outer cover. Much material on the sun, the moon, the stars and a comet. An interesting shaped poem on drunkenness, entitled "Baum der Trunkenheit", or "Tree of Drunkenness", which is cleverly shaped like a tree. Assorted other short pieces, including ones on beer and winemaking, a remedy for a dog bite, several poems. A section on routes to and from Hagerstown (to Baltimore, Washington, Pittsburgh, etc.) Close to a page on the courts in Maryland,etc. Upper corner chewed, not touching content. Other edge chips. Heavily toned and foxed/soiled. A few pencil marks. Still easily readable, and improbable to find in a substantially better state.

Price = 250.00 USD
