Edition : 1st Edition
Octavo, original pictorial olive-green cloth stamped in black and gold. First U.S. edition. One of Watson's collections of his tremendously popular Drumtochty stories, sketches nostalgically reflective of an idealized rural Scottish life. "In his day Watson had a large following both in Britain and abroad. Both Queen Victoria and W. E. Gladstone were admirers of his publications. Yet the great sentimentality of his fiction definitely places him in the Kailyard school. His chief merit was his ability to record rural dialects with reasonable competence, but he lacked skill in connecting sketches to form a unified work." - Kemp, Mitchell and Trotter, Edwardian Fiction, p. 258. Cloth a bit dusty and rubbed, a very good copy. (#133588). N° de réf. du libraire 133588
