Original chromolithographed wrappers, one illustration in text, 66 pages. With a brief history of the art of ventriloquism, this booklet includes instructions, sketches, and songs for use in routines. Racist depictions of "ethnic" dummies on front cover, carried by a caricature of the author. Wear to spine, chips to wrapper edges. Pages toned and fragile due to their printing on poor quality paper. Generally a very good copy, relatively well preserved.
