Ballads of a Book-Worm: Being a Rythmic Record of Thoughts, Fancies, & Adventures a-collecting
The author helpfully instructs the reader how to read this book of humorous verse, advising that: "Unless you love books aside from their contents, do not read this book at all. It is not meant for mere readers." The verses within are for the true bibliomaniac, for only he or she can understand: "How a bibliomaniac Binds his Books," "On a Book Bound in Red Morocco," "Suiting Paper to Subject," "My Friends the Books," or "The Fire in the Library."
