Octavo, pp. [i-vi] vii-viii [1] 2-341 [342: blank], original bevel-edged sage green cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, t.e.g., other edges untrimmed, black coated endpapers. First edition. "A second series of Irish Idylls, showing the author's qualities in perhaps a higher degree even than the first. A more exquisite story than 'A Good Turn' it would be hard to find. Throughout there is the most thorough sympathy with the poor folk ... It should be noted that, though there is in Miss Barlow's stories much pathos, there is an entire absence of emotional gush." - Brown, Ireland in Fiction 162. NCBEL III 1908. Wolff 305. Cloth worn at spine ends, spine panel tanned, some spotting to cloth, some foxing early and late, owner's name erased from half title page, long contemporary review of the book pasted to the verso of last leaf and recto of rear free endpaper, a sound reading copy.
