1 (Mencken, H.L.). Alfred A. Knopf, editor MENCKENIANA: A Schimpflexikon
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1928. First edition. Hardcover. Light rubbing to upper and lower spine extremities, very mild soiling to the covers, else very good plus to near fine in orange cloth with titles and devices on gilt panels and with rules to the front cover and spine, top page edges gilt; no dust jacket. 
A collection of articles gathered from newspapers, periodicals and pamphlets in which H.L. Mencken was the target of verbal slings and arrows. Mencken's harsh wit inspired a mountainous return of creatively spiked and venomous criticism. 132 pages.

2 Mencken, H.L. SPIRITUAL AUTOPSIES
(Boston/New York): Houghton Mifflin Company, [undated]. First edition, first printing: an offprint from the Literary Review of the New York Evening Post. Fine with just a hint of wear; a trifold pamphlet, consisting of a title-page, rear page of ads, and four pages of text. 5''x3.5''. 
Mencken piece occasioned by the release of Gamaliel Bradford's volume of biographies, AMERICAN PORTRAITS: 1875-1900. "I like these Bradford books. They make dead men seem real to me -- and often surprisingly likeable."--from the text. Scarce!
