Forester's pamphlet is rare with no auction records and only 6 listing in OCLC. The title calls this "Part I" but it appears no second part was issued. This is part 5 of a series of works in the "Tricks & Traps" series. The Bracken is equally rare with no copy offered in 30 years. Early American Imprints, Second Series, 34188.
