MENCKENIANA: A Schimpflexikon.

New York: Knopf, 1928. First edition. A representative collection of "salient specimens of...anti-Mencken invective--mainly single sentences or phrases, torn from their incandescent context." During 1926 alone more than 500 separate editorials and a number of whole pamphlets were published in the U.S. on the sayings and doings of Mencken, four-fifths of which were unfavorable; so, as Knopf says in his introductory note, "This collection is not exhaustive....." Small 8vo gilt-stamped orange cloth. About very good with covers lightly soiled and gilt slightly dulled.
