WINNIPEG PRESS CLUB
BEER AND SKITS 1983 - 50TH EDITION [together with] FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY DINNER Menu and Order of Proceedings
Winnipeg, MB, Winnipeg Press Club 1983, . Ill.: colour, b&w photos, cartoons. Card covers a bit soiled & rubbed; else very good condition. 4to,
Beer and Skits was a night of satire, humour, and awful singing held at the club rooms of the Winnipeg Press Club in Winnipeg's Marlborough Hotel. The first production was in 1933. Members eagerly awaited the production of each year's printed program, not only for the silly photos, but for the risque ones, as well. Many famous Manitobans, and people from the "other part of the country" were mercilessly skewered by the demented performers, who may have forgotten their lines, but never their beveridge. This offering is the official 50th edition program (complete with full-colour Playboy style centrefold), and the menu for the 50th anniversary dinner. A unique item.

DRAPER, JOHN S., OTHERWISE UNCLE BEN MORGAN, OF MORGANVILLE, N. Y.
SHAMS - or - Uncle Ben's Experience with Hypocrites
Chicago, IL, Thompson & Thomas 1899, hb. Ill.: black-&-white illustrations. Bound in original illustrated red cloth. Royal 8vo, pp. 273.
Inscribed on front free endpaper: "Dear Mrs. Kendall / Please accept this little gift from the Author and your loving friend / Mrs. J. S. Draper / Minneapolis, Minn. April 11th 1902". The book is generally in quite good condition, the silver lettering and image of "Uncle Ben" on the front board being bright and unmarked. However. at some distant point in the past, a bookworm took a liking to Uncle Ben's book and drilled holes through the text block, affecting only the margins and not the text. Otherwise the contents are tightly-bound and unmarked. A good plus copy, notwithstanding.
