ELM LEAVES A COLLECTION OF VERSES FROM YALE UNDERGRADUATE PUBLICATIONS.

New Haven: [Tuttle, Morehouse & Taylor, Printers], 1881. 256pp. Bright blue cloth, decorated in black, lettered in rustic type in gilt. Spine ends a bit rubbed and spine a trace darkened, offset to two pages from absent place marker, but a very good copy, with the booklabel of the Betts Collection at Yale and another related bookplate (properly withdrawn), and an early private bookplate. Item #WRCLIT73707

First edition. A substantial compilation, though some of it anonymous. Authorship is noted when known, but the compilers opted out of indexing same, perhaps because their own identified contributions would have overwhelmed the index.
