NOTHING TO SAY: A Slight Slap at Mobocratic Snobbery, Which has "Nothing to Do" with "Nothing to Wear".
New York: Rudd & Carleton, 1857. First edition. An answer in verse to the mocking of the rich in the (then) recently published satirical poem, "Nothing to Wear," pointing out the generousity and charity of many in the upper classes. 16mo brown cloth boards elaborately blind stamped on covers and lettered and with gilt decoration on front. Ad leaf tipped to front free endpaper; illustrations and frontis tipped in. Scattered foxing, tipped in leaves darkened, covers show moderate staining and spine ends softened and rubbed, otherwise about very good.
