    Horace Greeley: Spoof of Greeley Autobiography. Horace Greeley, famous as a journalist, gained some success as an author, writing a two-volume history of the Civil War, a book on agriculture ("What I Know About Farming") and an autobiography ("Recollections of a Busy Life"). The former title is lampooned in this 1867 tabloid titled "Wreck-Elections of a Busy Life." It was published by Kellogg & Bulkeley of Hartford with cartoon illustrations by J. Bowker. It measures 12" x 9" and has twenty cartoons printed on one side of a page only. It is bound in string and apparently had blue paper covers at one time. There is light damp staining throughout. Sabin 7072.
