Original dark green cloth on boards. Top edges gilt. No writing or damage. A book of poems by a Catholic newspaperman who was heavily influenced by Italian immigrants in his native Philadelphia. Clever, light-hearted poems written in simple dialect. I got a kick out of these closing lines from "Content" : "I wouldn't be a millionaire fur seven hundred dollars!" 172 pp.
