About this Item

Signed by Author New York and London, 1928. 8vo, publisher's half cloth over paper, 168 pp. Inscribed by Ward on front free endpaper. A parody done in the form of an epic poem by the Delaware writer Christopher Ward. A near fine copy with minimal wear. From the University of Delaware's Ward biography: " The saga was a rhymed burlesque and was followed by several others in the same genre, including a parody of Christopher Columbus and Robinson Crusoe. These burlesques were Ward's vehicle for incorporating his love of history into his comical literary style, and he enjoyed a certain degree of success with this new hybrid.".
