Book Description

Ninth impression (October, 1927). 8vo, pp. xii, [236]. Red pictorial buckram, echoing the dust jacket. Gentle wear to extremities, bottom corners bumped. Edges, endpapers, beginning and end foxed. Hinges starting, but binding holding firm. Else, clean. In the original illustrated dust jacket: ragged itself, heavily creased with numerous losses, still, the jacket art remains pleasingly vivid. A solid copy of the cheap edition (reprinted), unusual in the dust jacket.
Dealer Notes
Irish decorator, socialist and sign-writer Robert Noonan’s famous novel of working class grit and struggle, pseudonymously and posthumously published in 1914 by Grant Richards. The “Zola of the building trade operatives” drew his pseudonym from the trestle table of his trade, with Grant Richards misprinting his spelling (”Tressell”) in its early editions.
George Hicks was the President of the Trade Union Congress 1927 and General Secretary if the Amalgamated Union of Building Trade Workers of Great Britain and Ireland.
