Título: List of Tradesmen Representing the Yale ...
Editorial: Press of Tuttle, Morehouse & Taylor n.y. , New Haven
Año de publicación: 1886
Small 4to. Stiff blue wrappers. 20pp. Very good. Text block truly near fine, but mild bit of age toning to outer wrappers (only). Probable sole edition of this unusual booklet printed by "Printers to the Students of Yale College," being a collection of full-page advertisements for local businesses. According to the explanatory foreword (titled "Cash Basis"), "Tickets of the League will be supplied gratuitously to every student of the University" -- and presumably when presented to these merchants the student would receive a special student price. But students are warned that "Tradesmen request that there be no unnecessary display of 'League' tickets when purchasing, as the discounts offered may excite jealousy on the part of townspeople. Students are also requested not to lend their tickets to friends." The first full-page advertisement is, ironically, for "Ammunition, Guns, Etc." from the Office of A. A. Kellogg. Other ads include a shoe store, stationers, drug store, laundromat, furniture store, florist, optician, photographer, etc. As both the printed front wrapper and the title page note, "Not to be taken from the Room" -- an admonition that perhaps was obeyed, for copies of this pamphlet are quite scarce.
