Scope and Contents

Each page deals with one letter of the alphabet which depicts a image and a handwritten poem with each word beginning with the same letter of the alphabet. For example, the letter 'A' page reprints the following Aron ate abalone at alternate altitudes. "Anton asked after Anne, "Avon averred. Anne answered afirmatively, after assuming an attitude as alien as always." Animals argue as arrogantly," Anne asserted... The accompanying image to this story is a wrapper for 'Tums,' the antacid. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
