235; pp. Duodecimo [19.5 cm] Brown cloth over boards with a gilt stamped title on the spine. Beveled edges. Four pages of publisher's advertisements at the rear. Good. The extremities are gently rubbed, and there are thin losses from the cloth at the ends of the spine. There is a slightly more prominent rubbed spot on the spine. The underlying boards are exposed occasionally along the edges. There are barely perceptible tide marks on the bottom edges of the preliminary pages. The text block is cracked in a number of places, however the book is still very sturdy.
A collection of short stories, which provide wonderful illustrations of the Cape Cod dialect, particularly that of Chatham, Harwich, and the neighboring towns.
