Caine, Hall. Capt’n Davy’s Honeymoon.
London: Heiniemann, 1892.
7th Thousand. 8vo. 273pp. + 24pp. ads. Publisher’s red cloth titled and decorated in gilt to spine and front board, spine sunned, minor edgewear, cup marks, the bane of all cloth books, to front board. A strong solid copy, slightly marred by having been used as a coaster. Edges untrimmed, Internally clean, bookplate to front pastedown (E.W. Fisher, whose pencil ownership and address, dated 1896 are present on the verso of the front flyleaf). Internally clean. From the library of the late Richard Dalby, with a small sheaf of some of his ubiquitous paperwork laid in. One of Caine’s more decidedly Manx of his Manx tales; a young man off to seek his fortune, a girl waiting at home, a spot of intrigue, a bit of jealousy, en emotional roller coaster ensues.
