Description: Three issues bound together in yellow cloth, with leather spine labels, one reading "Topsy Turvy Literature.

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.

I wanted you to know that my book arrived in about 3 days in perfect condition. I am not an expert in grading book conditions, but to call this book very good with very good dust jacket is a true understatement. This book is pristine and immaculate. The book was wrapped in tissue, then wrapped in corrugated stuff and then wrapped in brown wrapping paper. I buy a lot of books on line and have never received a book so carefully prepared for shipping. It is refreshing to get such professional attention and I hope I can find more books at your place. - Daniel
