Boston: Small, Maynard & Company, 1898. The first book published by Irish-Americannewspaperman Peter Dunne (1867-1936) that featured an immigrant from Roscommon in Chicago; written in dialect, it was a tremendously popular creation. This is a Very Good (Plus) copy of the First Edition. Green cloth binding with gilt titling (and oddly-formed shamrocks) on the spine and front cover. Clean text; 206 pages. POS on the rear paste-down, and with some letters/numbers on the front paste-down (perhaps the signatory's library numbers?). Mild bumps, spine a bit darkened, light rubbing to the foot of the spine. A solid copy of an American classic with historical significance. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good (Plus)/No Jacket. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. First Edition.
