B/W Illus. Very Good. 8 vo. 258 clean, unmarked pages; A collection of pieces by the early American humorist, who, "in the crucial period between the convening of the first Continental Congress in 1774 and the ratification of the Constitution in 1789, played the role later to be assumed by such national jesters as Will Rogers and Art Buchwald--relieving the tensions of an anxious age with an effervescent mixture of tomfoolery and common sense."
