London & Edinburgh: T.N. Foulis, 1913. Birmingham was the pen-name of James Owen Hannay (1865-1950), an Irish cleric (Anglican) and quite a prolific novelist. This memoir is one of his more uncommon titles, and is distinguished by a dozen tipped-in colour plates of paintings by Jack B. Yeats (1871-1957), the brother of William Butler. Jack had a long and distinguished career as one of the most famous Irish artists of the Twentieth Century. This is a Very Good copy of the First Edition. Originally bright green, the cloth binding is now typically faded to a sort of olive-tinged tan. The gilt lettering is still bright; minor bumping to the corners. The text is clean and bright; 225 pages with 6 pages of publisher's adverts in the rear. All of the plates, which are often broken-out and sold individually, are present. There are two previous-owner inscriptions on the FFEP. One is contemporary (dated 1913) and the other is a gifting from 1965. Quercus dislikes the second inscriber so much that the book has been given a "minus" grade; admitedly, this is personal prejudice, and the buyer is free to disregard it. Actually this is a solid copy of this rare book. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good Minus/No Jacket. Illus. by Jack B. Yeats. First Edition.
