M.T.W. (ILLUSTRATED BY C R LORD; J G FRANCIS AND OTHERS.)
CONNOR MAGAN'S LUCK.
Boston: D. Lothrop & Company, Franklin St., Corner of Hawley, (c 1881.) Early printing. The title story is a genuinely charming, if unabashedly sentimental, tale of a young boy, the son of Irish immigrants, living in a shanty town between the banks of the Ohio River and the railroad tracks. Connor has inherited both his mother's indefatigable optimism and the quiet courage of his father, a brakeman for the railroad. This story was apparently bound with varying other stories - this volume includes 'Miss West's Class Talks About Words,' 'How Jonathan Ran Away From School' and 'Surprised.' Illustrated with a frontispiece (which refers to a story not included in the book), a decorative title page, 5 full page plates and several smaller entexte drawings (some signed by C. R. Lord and J. G. Francis, others unsigned.) Unpaginated [50 pp.] A small slim volume measuring just 7 1/8 by 4 7/8 inches, bound in gray cloth with red and gilt illustration on front cover, lettering in gilt (title is misspelt on front cover as 'Magin's') Previous owner's name dated Christmas 1884. Very good condition - some soiling to the covers and minor shelfwear, front hinge starting, but appealing, sturdy and still very easily readable.

TINY REDCAP'S STORY BOOK
New York: Thomas Nelson & Sons, n.d. (1886 or earlier) A rather charming, but very fragile, little children's book. Small format, 14.5 cm x 11 cm (just over 5 x 4) with 48 unnumbered pages. Small black and white illustrations on almost every page (drawings and silhouettes.) Little slice of life stories: The Drunkard begins Oh Ben! I am sorry to him in the stocks there. Others are on flowers, water, naughty Ada, etc. Although not dated, this does have a gift inscription on the front endpaper of 1886. Bound in paper covered boards with a color illustration inset on the front cover (with a picture of Redcap at the beach.) Pages are loose, last page is detached, and rear endpaper might be missing. The paper spine is torn and peeling, revealing the mesh underneath, some wear to corners and edges. Still quite uncommon, and interesting.
