Comments¶ An anthology of humor which includes the first book appearances of Harris’ “Sut Lovingood’s Yarns,” and the first book appearance by “Lewis Carroll,” a story entitled “Novelty and Romancement: A Broken Spell,” pirated from English periodical The Train. A Harp of a Thousand Strings enjoyed great popularity and went through numerous reprintings from the same plates in the 19th century, but the first printing is scarce.
