162 Wright, Dr. William The Brontes in Ireland. Or, Facts Stranger Than Fiction
New York D. Appleton and Company 1894 First Edition. Hardcover Very Good Minus No Jacket 
New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1894. Here we have an interesting and controversial work by the prominent Cambridge scholar William Wright (1837-1899), whose major focus was on the Middle East. The book claims an Irish origin for the Bronte family, and there have been rebuttals of his theory. This is a Very Good copy of the First American Edition, which is widely held by institutions but rather scarce in the Trade. Per Copac, an edition was published in England by Hodder in 1893. Green cloth binding with gilt decorations (shamrocks!) and lettering on the spine and front cover. Clean text; 308 pages, with eight pages of publisher's adverts in the rear. The book has minor rubbing and bumping; and there is a splay, but the book is sound. There is a period community library sticker on the front paste-down. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First Edition.. Cloth. Very Good Minus/No Jacket. First Edition.
