Attractive copy of this early "Lakeside Classic," the annual keepsake given by this printer and publisher to friends and clients starting in 1903. This particular volume features contributions from William Bross, Charles Cleaver and famed actor Joseph Jefferson. Early Lakesides from their "green period" -- the first 24 years -- have become rather scarce in recent years.
