Description: Three issues bound together in yellow cloth, with leather spine labels, one reading "Topsy Turvy Literature. The pictorial covers with identical design in dark green & sienna by Will Bradley are present, as well as the back covers, with ads. Northampton, Mass., Oct. - Dec., 1896. First Editions.

Comments: Inscribed by Cable on the fly-leaf: "The best about this volume is that it was printed in a whisper...N. Orleans (as it happens), 1916" It was indeed printed in a whisper, as copies of the periodical are practically unknown. Cable, a New Orleans writer moved to Northampton in 1885. Will Bradley lived nearby. The yellow cloth is dust-soiled, loss to margin of page 55 not affecting text, subtle crease down center of third issue, not very noticeable. Excepting margin tear, internally near fine. Preserved in a 1/4 blue morocco slipcase.

Just a quick message to let you know that I have received the book last week, 1726, in a French armorial binding. Just beautiful, a great addition to my collection. Thanks again for selling such quality items and hope to trade with you again. Best regards from France - Adrien
