The Lark, Nos. 1-24 [with] The Epi-Lark.
San Francisco: William Doxey, 1895-1897. 2 vols., sm. 4to, unpaginated. Illustrated throughout. The usual browning and edge wear to all issues. Original b rown buckram, covers printed with color illustrations and black lettering. Very good. First edition A complete run of San Franciscos original Bohemian zine, written and illustrated by Gelett Burgess and his fellow irreverent aesthetes, Les Jeunes, including Maynard Dixon, Porter Garnett and Ernest Peixotto. The first issue contains Burgess immortal verse, Purple Cow, and the last, fittingly, his regretful revocation: Ah, yes, I wrote the "Purple Cow" / I'm Sorry, now, I wrote it; / But I can tell you Anyhow / I'll Kill you if you Quote it!
