Signed by the Author on half-title.
A curious variant, unlike any other copy we can trace. This work was the first of the Mandrake Booklets so it is possible this was an abandoned trial.
Liam O’Flaherty’s satirical study of Ireland and her people, written ostensibly to warn the traveller to the country.
