London (1878). 8vo.
Often regarded as first great modern Irish novelist, Moore influenced James Joyce among many others. This, his first published work, was self-published and derided by the critics who were offended by "depravities in store for moralistic readers" and was withdrawn by the author shortly thereafter.
Very good in black cloth, front cover gilt with design of a skull and cross-bones with a lyre, lightly worn spine gilt-lettered, some scattered foxing. Rebound using the original front cover.
