Christina, It's not Wade, or a couple of others I checked (Blacklow,
Langford, at al). And it's not Arnold Gassan *4th edition* tho I'm
wondering if it could be an earlier or later Gassan -- that kind of
grouping sounds like him.

But I mention something I'd noticed a while back in Kent Wade & thought
worth mentioning: Wade has a section on "Gum Oil," which he cites as the
invention/discovery of a graduate student, from his thesis -- I haven't
seen Karl Koenig's "Gum Oil," tho I did see his promotion for that book in
every venue from here to Machu Pichu... I wondered if the source was
credited... Does anyone have that ??? (Just curious.)
