8vo 47pp A collection of 210 aphorisms uttered by the members of a small south side club called "The Three Threes", an association of nine well known business and professional gentlemen of Chicago, who dine together, at stated intervals, in the club rooms of a down town resaurant. At these meetings, held "every ninth night after the first night of each and every of the nine months following the ninth month of the year", called "Ninth Night Banquets", it is a custom of the members, "seated in threes at three legged tables", to spend the entire evening in discussion upon such topics as suggest themselves, or may be called out by the events of the day. From these after dinner conversations come the contents of the book. Contains such beauties as: "If you would hear a wise man speak like a fool, get him to talk about his children". "The dead are lonely in winter. Grief freezes as well as love". "The older the bachelor, the younger he wants the lady to be." Good in cloth-backed boards (long tear to spine, corners and edges rubbed, foxing and stains to cloth, some sentences marked with pencil). Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.
