The Tragedy; One of the Ingoldsby Legends. Prefatory note by James Dille

Chicago: The Press of the Silver Quoin, 1944. Hardcover. 9p., rubricated heads and numerals, hardbound in 7x5 inch boards, cloth backstrip, and a printed paper cover label. A nice production; as it were, fine-press once removed. Casing is a little worn, toned and scratched; lies flat and square, a good to very good copy. Pressman and introducer Dille has reduced the original story to expert doggerel; "I think," he says, "my preference for this particular legend is because of the denouement, which involves not only the pharmacological effects of cyanide but also the delicate accomplishment of homicide the the method of Burke and Hare"
