The Sunny Side of Life Shown in Humorous Style, Containing Comic Sayings of the Day as Told by A Merry Widower. [title page; cover title:] The Sunny Side of Life.. As Told By A Merry Widow.

New York: J. S. Ogilvie Publishing Company, 1906. Paperback. 119p., line illustrations throughout the text, softbound, 7.5x5 inch staplebound textblock in paste-fastened wraps, very toned, wraps detached and chipped, a reading copy. Run-on gags by a Henny Youngman incarnation (our era's is better); no copies listed by OCLC as of March 2015.

Illustrations are credited in plate to "Allan;" these are competent, strange (hands are drawn huge!) and wholly silly, except that the cover vignette betrays a Harrison Fisher influence. Publisher's ads on the last leaves and back cover, where we find that Ogilvie offers The Kreutzer Sonata as well as Ten True Secret Service Detective Stories.
