204 Hamilton, Allan McLane; Willis, George, authors. Mark, Ronald; Stover, A., editors BRAINS FOR JANES
New Orleans: Pirate Press, 1948. First edition, limited issue; 200 numbered copies were issued (according to the colophon); this is an unnumbered copy. Hardcover. Clothbound chapbook and a genuine oddity: a pair of short tales about brain transplants. Very good only in grey cloth with title to front board; the boards are a bit splayed and show some mild fading and splashes of dampstain. 
The first piece is by a doctor/phrenologist (and grandson of Alexander Hamilton), who--among other accomplishments--measured the head of Garfield's assassin, and reported on the Fortean Kentucky meat shower of 1876! Willis thus far eludes identification.

Unlike the limited clothbound issue, this edition bears the imprint ''nightrider 1'' to the front cover, along with the title. 
Two brain transplant stories: "Herr von Striempfell's Experiment" by Hamilton, and "Not Counting Death" by Willis. Each tale is preceded by a brief, uncredited (and, for the most part, incomprehensible) preface, presumably the work of Stover and Mark.
