Prologue: The reader will probably not find Ponkapog set down in any but the very latest gazetteer. It is the Indian name of a little New England village [in Massachusetts], from which the writer sallied forth, a while ago, on a pilgrimage beyond the sea. Ponkapog scarcely merits a description, and Pesth [pronounced Pest, in Hungary]-- the farthest point east to which his wanderings led him -- has been too often described. He is thus happily relieved of the onus of making strictly good the title of these papers, whose chief merit, indeed, is that they treat of neither Pesth nor Ponkapog. Spine and top of green & gilt front board age-darkened. Front and rear gutters beginning to crack, foxing, original pocket from 1908 still present, as is the check-out card. Some biopredation to front board and on the spine. NOT A PRINT-ON-DEMAND COPY. ; Ex-Library; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 267 pages; 25999
