About This Item

London: Isbister & Co., 1903. Decorated green cloth, lettered in gilt and white. Very slightly shaken, two ownership signatures on free endsheet, tips a bit rubbed, but a good, sound copy. First UK edition, published the same year as the US edition, in a later state of the binding. Donegal-resident MacManus traveled often to the US and had direct contact with his periodical and book publishers there, so potential priority of this edition is unknown to this cataloguer. This edition is significantly more uncommon than the US edition (OCLC locates 9 copies, versus over fifty for the McClure Phillips edition). Brown does not cite this edition at all, noting the US and the somewhat later Dublin editions only. This may be due to the fragility of the Isbister firm at the time, which was taken over by Pitman in 1905. And indeed the spine imprint on this copy is 'Pitman'. OCLC: 12829076. BROWN 1065.
