2 Courtright, William; Three Books Bound Into One: New Coon Jokes; the Complete Minstrel Guide; Minstrel Gags and End Men's Jokes
Dramatic Publishing Co. , and Arthur Westbrook Company 1901 First Edition Hardcover Good 
Here we have three separate publications, which someone has bound into the covers of "the Little Lame Prince" by punching 4 holes in each, then tying them together in the Prince covers. "New Coon Jokes" has no date, and is published by the Arthur Westbrook Company. It's front wrap is missing, but the rear cover is there, although almost loose. There are some pencil marks inside, and light rubbing at the corners. The second book is "The Complete Minstrel Guide" by William Courtright. A couple of pages have short closed tears at the right hand edge, but it would grade very good to very good +, if not for the binding holes. The third book is "Minstrel Gags and End Men's Jokes", also published by Arthur Westbrook Company, with no author or date. The front and rear wraps are badly rubbed at the edges, but are present. The colorful cover is about as offensive as one would expect. The contents are also what one would expect from the publication considering the time and social context in which it was done. Not all of the content is actually offensive, and some are quite humorous. With all things considered, the book as it is, is a statement of our history and social change. Someone found the books interesting enough to save, but demeaning enough to disguise. The price is for all three scarce titles in the one binding, as is. ; 7"
