1 Morris (Gouverneur) - Illustrated by Raymond Moreau Crosby. [Anonymous]. A Bunch of Grapes Cut From the Vine with a Pair of Shears by Him & Me.

[New Haven, ca. 1898 - 1900]. Small 4to. Original porous paper pictorial wrappers. The spine has been repaired with red cloth tape (perhaps re-attaching loose covers); it may be removeable, but will surely leave behind glue residue. Some tears to the edges of first and final leaves, edge wear and some chipping, generally very good otherwise. Clever verse and humorous illustrations [by Raymond Moreau Crosby], relating to student life at Yale. This is possibly Morris's first published work, done while a student at Yale.
