Condition: See description

Fine-screen half-tone frontispiece and five plates; pp.[viii]+370; black smooth cloth blocked in gilt and white on front cover and spine, ruled gilt, lettered white, on spine, lettered scarlet and white on front cover. Enamel a trifle rubbed and end-papers cracked at gutters; but a nice copy nonetheless. The biography of a clever Irish-American bastard born in New York, who takes to crime. Written very much in the demotic New York manner of its time. From its somewhat episodic nature, it probably began life as a sequence of short stories. Hubin, p.150. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.
