Phillipps had the spare copies of this handout roughly bound up together in one volume. These copies, though now disbound, can be recognised by the fact that the left-hand edge is folded over with several stitching-holes along the fold. (This may be what you're referring to when you say that 'the page appears to have been once glued into a scrapbook along one edge'.) These copies were acquired by the New York bookseller H.P. Kraus when he bought the residue of the Phillipps collection in the 1960s/70s, and more recently came on the market again after the dispersal of Kraus's remaining stock at auction.


Meditations on Turning Eight, by Lisa Simpson.

I had a cat named Snowball
   She died, she died!
Mom said she was sleeping
   She lied, she lied!
Why, oh why is my cat dead?
Couldn't that Chrysler hit me instead?


Arnold: That's indeed what it is, thanks.

Oystein: It's not like Lisa Simpson's poem is much worse... :)
