The musings of Uncle Silas. By B.B. Clarke. Illustrations by Frank W. Hopkins

Madison, WI: American Thresherman, 1904. 208p., Hopkins' cartooning throughout (confined to the wide margins) some of which racist and all of it cruel, mildly edgeworn pictorial boards, the signature bearing p.149-156 is detached and has foredge dust-grime from sticking out, an otherwise good-only item that is inscribed by the author.

Short essays on numerous topics; the two pages on "our" Philippine Islands (p.22/23) are especially nasty. FYI, Hopkins work very much resembles that of W.W. Denslow.
