This book has the same text as Gems of Modern Wit and
Humor which was published by the Monarch Book Company in 1903. It is
unclear when it was published and by whom since there is no publisher
imprint on the title page.
This anthology starts with an introduction by Robert Burdette.
George W. Peck contributed three short vignettes to this volume.
No Female Doctors
He Didn't Get the Apples
No Time for Ears to Freeze
There is also a short biographical sketch of Peck.
Here is a deluxe edition of this title. It is 9.75 x 7.25 with numerous
"art photo-tone" portraits and line drawn cartoons. There is no
publisher noted anywhere within the book. It only indicates the 1903
copyright holder L. G. Stahl.
