The Rising Sun
Vol 3 of Cervantes Hogg's "Serio-Comic Satiric Romance"
First edition, hardback bound in full leather. Contrasting title labels to spine and gilt margins to boards. 16 × 10cm, 212pp.
The third volume only of the Irish satirist's first novel. This copy has a (defective) fold-out colour frontispiece.
Whilst the leather and text are in good condition, the colour frontispiece suffers significant tears with one to the left-hand side running nearly the entire height of the plate and it holding on only by the slightest remaining paper, and another heavy tear to the right-hand side.
