Author Name    Taylor, Bert Lester; Folwell, Arthur Hamilton; Bangs, John Kendrick

Title   MONSIEUR D'EN BROCHETTE: Being An Historical Account of Some of the Adventures of Huevos Pasada Par Agua, Marquis of Pollio Grille, Count of Pate de Foie Gras, and Much Else Besides

Binding   Hardcover.

Book Condition   Fine, a lovely fresh example, in rich, satin-finish chianti cloth with gilt script lettering and stunning illustrative device of the title character, done in gilt and cream; no dust jacket. A discreet owner bookplate to pastedown detracts not at all.

Edition   First edition, first printing. Illustrated by Frank A. Nankivell.

Publisher   New York: Keppler & Schwarzmann, 1905.

Seller ID   45974.00

Wild and witty pastiche of a Three Musketeers-style adventure novel, with lots of silly faux-Spanish and French; Nankivell's brilliant illustrations mischievously skewer the then voguish super-detailed pen-and ink style with a cartoonish irreverence.

Humor. Fiction. Illustrated Books.

Price = 75.00 USD
