44p. Henry Clapp was a literary writer who first published Walt Whitman and moved from being a Sunday School teacher to a socialist advocate of free love. The humorous poems in this little book which delighted radicals on the late 1850's has been called a volume on free love though it appears innocent to readers of our era. a few light smudges on margins of a few pages, else a near fine copy.
