New York: Mermaid Press, 1962. Softcover. A scarce miniature book from Fridolf Johnson's Mermaid Press that parodies traditional alphabet books. In this version, Nasty Nancy torments her poor Kitty by such means as addling, clobbering, hanging, kicking and vexing among other horrid acts until the poor Kitty is dead. Fortunately, as cats have nine lives, Kitty now has another of them spent with sweet and kind Egbert. Bound in cream paper boards with title in red on front cover. The ornate first letters of each word are printed in various bright colors. In near fine condition. Housed in a blue slipcase with fading to edges. Measures 2 x 2.25 inches. Near Fine.
