Charles O'Malley the Irish Dragoon
Dublin: William Curry 1841. 2 volume set, 8 1/2 inches tall. A very bright half calf with gilt raised bands, red label and striking floral gilt tooling to the panels. Illustrated throughout with full page plates by Phiz. Hugely popular in his time Lever, 'The irish Dickens', is now out of fashion, but this tale of an rogue Irish dragoon who witnesses the Battle of Waterloo is still a good read.
