Captain Billy’s Whiz Bang

cbwbEdited by Captain Billy Fawcett, a veteran of the Spanish-American War and World War I, this complete facsimile edition of the February, 1922 issue of Captain Billy’s Whiz Bang featuring a collection of humorous prose, poetry, and essays on the carefree life was the racy magazine for libertines in its day. From its opening description of Cuba as “the land of liberty” through the jokes littered with the situations, slang, and bigotries of the day, this book serves as a fascinating time capsule of what great great grampa’s world was like. Entertaining and educational, Capt. Billy’s Whiz Bang is a lively piece of pop culture history, living up to both its masthead description as “America’s Magazine of Wit, Humor, and Filosophy” and its cover motto, “Explosion of Pedigreed Bunk.”
