1 Gogarty, Oliver St. John Going Native
New York Duell, Sloan and Pearce 1940 Cloth 
Fine in a Very Good dustjacket. Bound in full blue buckram. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in gilt. Octavo. 294pps. Second printing. An excellent copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No previous ownership markings. The colorful, price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has light wear at the extremities and a 2" scratch on the rear panel. ".Ouseley, the hero of this tale of an Irishman going native amongst the queer English, was advised by William Butler Yeats to leave Ireland and try the taste of civilization on that other island. Ouseley therefore sets forth and bravely makes the round of England -- house parties, vicars, peers, pubs, and poetry. He discovers many things -- for example, that in Belgrave Square you don't pour by the glass, you take your bottle by the neck and retire to a table; and that Scotland Yard is largely the invention of Edgar Wallace, who turned it into a kind of clubhouse for pipe-smokers. The irrepressible Dr. Gogarty has written a very serious kind of light-hearted book -- the critique of a way of life and a civilization -- a book which will probably cause a good many Englishmen to wish him quietly back to Dublin."
