Rare first edition from 1876 of THE LITERATURE OF KISSING, Gleaned From History, Poetry, Fiction and Anecdote, by Dr. C.C. Bombaugh. Author of "Gleanings for the Curious." The boards and binding are solid and tight, save for some shelf-wear to the spine ends. The pages are crisp and clean save for previous owner's signature (1895) on the first blank page. On last blank page, someone had attached a small newspaper clipping on "Kisses" that stained the previous last page — I left it for the future owner. Brown boards with black and gilt decorations on front and back boards and spine; 382 pages.
