DOESTICKS, WHAT HE SAYS.

Pp. 380. 12mo. Elegantly bound in cloth.

Price $1 00.

Being a compilation of the original letters from the immortal Q. K. PHILANDER DOESTICKS, P. B. (Perfect Brick.)

[From N. P. Willis's Home Journal .]

"Things so copied, so talked of, so pulled out of every pocket to be lent to you, so quoted, and so relished and laughed over as Doesticks' writings, never were launched into print."

PLU RI BUS TAH;

A SONG THATS BY NO AUTHOR A DEED WITHOUT A NAME.

Pp. 264. 12mo. Elegantly bound in cloth.

Price $1 00.

As a History of the country this book is invaluable, inasmuch as it notices a great many events not mentioned by Bancroft, Hildreth, or Prescott. As a Novel it is unapproachable, for it contains several characters unknown to Cooper, Dickens, Marryatt, or Bulwer. As a Mythological Work it should be immediately secured, as it makes mention of a number of gods and deified worthies hitherto unknown to old Jupiter himself. As a Poem, its claims to consideration cannot be denied, as it comprises a great many beauties not discoverable in the "Song of Hiawatha," besides several Indian names which were therein omitted.

THE ELEPHANT CLUB.

BY DOESTICKS AND KNIGHT RUSS OCKSIDE, M.D.

Pp. 321. 12mo. Elegantly bound in cloth.

A veritable and veracious History of the Doings and Misdoings of the members of the Elephant Club. With the minute and particular narrative of what they did. To which is added a complex and elaborate description of what they didn't. Containing also the exultant record of their memorable success in eventually obtaining, each and every one, a sight of the entire and unadulterated animal, from the primitive hair on his attenuated proboscis, to the last kink of his symmetrical tail.

NOTHING TO SAY.

I, Q. K. P. DOESTICKS, of No Hall, Nowhere; No Castle, no Villa, no Place, Court, or Terrace; Who didn't write "Junius," or "Nothing to Wear," Who never have visited London or Paris; Who am not a phantom, a myth, or a mystery, But a "homo," as solid as any of history; As real as Antony, C├Žsar, or Brutus, A wide awake Yankee, so "tarnation 'cute" as To always write Nothings, while Nothings will pay, Am the author of this Nothing Nothing to Say.
