Very Good. Item #8292
New York: Phillips & Hunt, 1887. First Edition. Small, slim octavo (19cm.); publisher's green pictorial cloth embossed in black and gilt; 132pp.; illus. throughout text. Boards a bit rubbed at margins, corners bumped with brief exposure, light soil, else Very Good and sound.
Despite the title, not a polemical attack on the author's rowdy neighbors, but instead a sweet meditation on woodland, barnyard, and household critters as told from their point-of-view. Quite scarce: we find just two physical copies in OCLC as of December, 2020, at the Buffalo & Erie County Library and Library of Congress.
