Hilarious. Heard about this hoax and had to read it. Pearson composed it as a hoax, and a number of book reviewers fell for it. Personally, I don't understand how. Pearson commented that he purposefully included anachronisms and false sources as clues to its illegitimacy. Read more about the hoax in The History Of A Hoax: Edmund Lester Pearson, John Cotton Dana, And The Old Librarian's Almanack.
