STRAY LEAVES FROM A PASSING LIFE, AND OTHER STORIES

by [MacCarthy, John.]

Condition: See description


New York: The Catholic Publication Society Co., 1883.. Octavo, original decorated green cloth stamped in black and gold. Later edition. A collection of short stories, including sensation fiction. The first edition appeared in 1878. Overlooked by Wright, American Fiction 1876-1900, who probably considered this to be fiction for young readers, thought it seems to us more aimed at adults. Cloth a bit rubbed, inner hinges tender, a good copy. (#135858)
