About this Item: University of Kentucky Publications Committee, Lexington. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. 1940, xv, 115pp, paper covered boards and cloth backstrip. Corners worn through, moderate wear elsewhere, contents G. The first edition was 1814. It was said by Howes (L-378) to be the first humorous book produced west of the Alleghanies. That may well be true; however, it was also generally thought to be the first book printed in Louisville. That is incorrect. As of the time of this writing, that honor belongs to a book printed in 1803 in Louisville, written by Richard Dickinson, entitled AN ADDRESS TO JUDGE INNES, SOLE AND ABSOLUTE JUDGE, IN ALL CASES TO THE AMOUNT OF TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS; AND TO THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Littell's satirical, EPISTLES OF WILLIAM, SURNAMED LITTELL, had been published at Frankfort, KY in 1806, and was later included in FESTOONS. Coincidentally, the copy that sold at the Streeter Sale, (1648), had the signature of the aforementioned Judge Innes on the title page, so he is associated with the first two books (again, as of this writing) printed in Louisville. See also Jillson, p. 52; Coleman 2718; Kentucky Rarities 78; Graff 2508. This book had belonged to Elmer Adler, the founder of Pynson Printers in New York City, with his signature.

About this Item: From the Press of William Farquar, Louisville, Kentucky, 1814. First edition. First edition. [2], 180 pp. (pages 3-10, 13-18 and 179 in facsimile). 12mo. ?The first humorous book produced West of the Alleghanies [sic]? (Howes). ?Festoons of Fancy is not only the first important book of poems printed west of the Alleghenies, but it is almost certainly the first book of any kind printed in Louisville? (Streeter). Littell (1768-1824) was a lawyer and author who, after a stint in western Pennsylvania, settled in Kentucky in 1801. He published several import law reference works that were early efforts to codify Kentucky law. His satires, Epistles of William, Surnamed Littell, to the People of the Realm of Kentucky (1806) and Festoons of Fancy (which includes the earlier work), were not well-received at the time, and were seen as ?proofs of his eccentricity, frivolousness, and immorality. Today they are acknowledged as important first examples of frontier humor? (DAB).
