ADD TO WISHLIST

London, Smith, Elder & Co., 1833. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. Near fine. Brothers Michael and John Banim published under the pseudonyms Abel and Barnes O'Hara [ODNB attributes this primarily to Michael, John being ill by then]. Not in Blieler, though the earlier Revelations of the Dead-Alive is (under futurity). A copy of Revelations is noted in Spectrum too. The first in Smith, Elder and Co's Library of Romance series, edited by Leitch Ritchie. A series intended to counter the expensive triple-deckers [Rodensky, ...the Victorian Novel, p39]. Rebound in fairly recent half-morocco, with five raised bands, marbled boards. Binding a little modern, but nice enough. A very nice copy, clean throughout. Rare, copies located at Oxford and BL in COPAC. No copies found in commerce. [7831, Hyraxia Books].
