A beautiful little book, this volume was signed by one “Thos Cobb” on March 20, 1907, and was later part of the private library of a Mr. Elbert H. Hicks, where it was assigned the number 270. Included at the end is a fascinating fifteen-page “selected list” of publications offered by Small, Maynard & Company.

In the Forum: a nightmare comedy, riddled with philosophical questions.
