"Sundry Ejaculations by Christopher Morley, Cleon Throckmorton and Ogden Nash and Certain of the Hoboken Ads with a Commentary on Them by Earnest Elmo Calkins. Illustrations by Edward A. Wilson, George Illian, Cleon Throckmorton, August William Hutaf and Jay." Humorous tales of Morley's [et al] unsuccessful venture as a theatrical producer at The Old Rialto Theatre in Hoboken,NJ -- where in the company of his circle of friends, there was apparently "much bending of elbows" in local establishments. Ogden Nash's collaboration with Morley here is one of his earliest publications. The ads (reproduced at the rear, commented upon by Earnest Elmo Calkins) are witty gems!    [Book ID # 165]
