Artesian Society

 Collection
Identifier: GTA-000485-DS
One volume with the history and proceedings of the Society which, according to Francis Barnum's Stray Notes, was "merely a burlesque affair gotten up by the Scholastics in 1863. As the name implies it encouraged Bores and Boring. Its Patrons were St. Borgia and Brian Boru . . . discussions were held over the most nonsensical subjects, such as a research on what really constituted the difference between Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee . . ."
