Paddy the Next Best Thing

This book is extremely rare, especially to find a British copy dated 1908. My copy, pictured on this page, is a first American edition.

The first British edition was published by Hurst and Blackett in 1908, and the first American edition was published in 1916, 8 years after the first British edition, by Frederick A. Stokes in New York.

Hurst and Blackett reprint editions in original dust jackets, none of which are in my collection.
