Waterville College.  Bell-a! Horrid-a bell-a! Inaugural ceremonies at the coronation of John Tupper Champlin. [Maine?]: No publisher/printer, 1853. 8vo (23 cm; 9") 4 pp.
$425.00

College wit and humor delivered to the not unsuspecting audience on Wednesday, April 6th, 1853. "The performance will commence with a grand review of all the available force of the institution, under the immediate inspection of the emperor. At precisely 7 o'clock the rabble will move in the following order."
        The caption title reads: "Smith, with a copy of the 'Fugitive Slave Law,' eagerly inquiring the way to Canada." The text printed within a wavy border.
        WorldCat locates only the copy at the Library Company of Philadelphia, this being its deaccessioned duplicate.

Old folds, dust-soiled, other stains. Evidence of old stitching. A decent copy of a rarity.  (38404)   Please RESHELVE This.
