[Salem, Mass.? n. p., 1868]. First edition. 8vo, unbound pamphlet,  pages. Title-page vignette of a booted elephant draped with a blanket reading "Only $600,000" and bearing aloft a banner with the strange device, "Old Aqueduct." A little splitting along the spine; a very good copy. Item #14037
An obscure (but amusing) satirical political work, aimed against the sale of the Salem Aqueduct and the water works to the city of Salem, with the share-holders in the current company (who would no doubt profit by this use of public funds) here being made to voice solemn absurdities on the subject.
