Deportmental Ditties and other verses.

By Harry Graham

Illustrated by Lewis Baumer.

Published by ….. wait for it…………. Mills & Boon (Now there’s a surprise).

This seems to be a first edition and we have been trying (not very hard we confess) to track down the precise date.  Probably 1909 but we are making no promises.  Hard back in rather good nick.

7½ x 10 inches

127 pages of corny verses sprinkled with delicious illustrations.

Topics covered include Birth, Marriage, Dancing and so on.
