Dublin: M.H. Gill & Son, 1907. Written anonymously, this is the acknowledged work of James McHenry (1785-1845), an Irish-American physician, playwright, and novelist. It first appeared in "The American Monthly" magazine in 1824. Copies are uncommon to scarce; not held in LOC and all UK copies are Scottish editions. This is a Very Good Plus to Near Fine copy of the First Edition Thus; there is no publication date but most likely the 1907 edition held at Trinity College Dublin. Green cloth binding with gilt lettering on the front cover; minimal wear and gilt is still very bright. Clean text; 128 pages. In a bit of a twist, the text is starting to tan while the endpapers are completely bright. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. First Thus.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/No Jacket. First Edition.
