First edition of this amateur effort, "written 1925 to 1935 [and] Edited, Printed, Bound & Marketed..." by the author. Dewson evidently had access to a deep case of dingbats and felt it necessary to use most of them, along with occasional ornamental initials. The upper wrapper bears a price in pencil in the hand of a late well-known Texas bookseller ($650). OCLC locates 8 copies, including several outside of Texas.

Price: $100.00
