Newell, Peter. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1908. Hardcover. First Edition. First Printing with "Published October, 1908" on copyright page. Unpag. 8vo. Blue cloth boards with stapled binding, cover illustration applied to cover boards. General wear and scuffing minimal given its age. Very Good.
An ingenious and charming book that shows the implications of young Tom Potts firing a gun by mistake as the bullet passes through each page (literally a hole in each page) showing the humerous havoc that results from Tom's irresponsible behavior. Racial and sexual sterotypes abound, given the date of publication.
