Poets Ranked by Beard Weight is the centerpiece of Upton Uxbridge Underwood's (1881 - 1937) estimable, if fetish-fueled treatise on pogonology, or the study of whiskers and associated lore. First published in England on the eve of The Great War, this quaint publication takes the reader on a fascinating excursion.
Poets Ranked by Beard Weight is a classic of Edwardian esoterica, a privately printed leaflet offered to the informed man of fashion and as a divertissement au courant for reading bins and cocktail tables of parlor cars and libraries and smoking lounges of gentlemen's clubs.
