GOULD, NAT. - A Straight Goer.

London, John Long [1906?]. Octavo publisher's green cloth. A rather good copy. ¶ Undoubtedly the first edition; the adverts at the end suggest that minor adjustments to Morris Miller's chronology are needed. I pity anyone who takes on a bibliography of Nat Gould; some books are advertised in boards at 2/- or cloth at 2/6; some are advertised in wrappers only. One of Gould's Australian romps, within the first few pages we are introduced to a far flung outback station, the owner's daughter with mysterious antecedents and an unjustly accused younger son of English plutocracy. I skipped to the end in fear that Gould would have this youngish gentleman end up with his arms about the girl, who is only twelve at the start, but rightly he ends up with the faithful young woman at home who always believed in his innocence (who seems to be his first cousin). In between there are bushrangers and horses and other thrills but having reached the end I don't want to give away the middle.
