Hoots!

By Bell, J J

Valentine & Sons, Ltd., Dundee and London, 1929. First Edition. Softcover. Good/No Jacket. 36 pages (complete). A much owned and enjoyed copy of this collection of Scots humour. Despite coming from a wealthy family in Glasgow (born in Hillhead), John Joy Bell was loved for his stories written in the vernacular of the working-classes. This book is a generous and excellent collection of some of these. The card covers are creased, worn, scuffed, marked. They are secure and sure. The contents are foxed, worn about the edges. They are clean, clear, comfortable, convivial, companionable and enjoyable. fk
