Very Good. Item #5953
Erie: The A-No. 1 Publishing Company, 1921. First Edition. Vol. 12 in the overall series of 12. Small Octavo; 128pp. Twelve full-page line drawings with a few vignette tail-pieces at chapter divisions. Stapled persimmon card wrappers, with pictorial front and vignette on back. Photographic portrait of the author (making him look very much like Enrico Caruso) on inside of front cover.
Wraps lightly soiled but still bright. Frayed spine foot; all corners worn. Volume was solidly produced and is still complete and robust despite zealous rereading by previous owner(s).
This final volume in the successful series finds America's Most Famous Tramp still married (as narrated in Volume 10 of the series) and now domestic, and famous, enough to receive correspondence from other traveling hoboes. The second half of the novel is epistolary, a series of letters from "Raoul Voleur" who most often goes by "Frenchy." Transferring the principal events to a third party allows A-No.1 to depict slightly more dubious adventures, including some politely described transactions between Frenchy and a brothel-keeper.
