Condición del libro:New
The Adventures of Paddy M'Quillan is the first of three volumes in the series Robin's Readings (originally Humorous Readings) by W. G. Lyttle. First published in book form in 1879, it is a collection of stories based on humorous monologues that the author gave around the country in the guise of Robin, a County Down farmer, who spoke in what is widely known today as 'Ulster-Scots'.
It is now approximately one hundred years since the book was last in print. This new edition, with reset text, includes an introduction, footnotes and an extensive glossary of words to help place the work in context and aid the modern reader.About the Author:
Wesley Greenhill Lyttle was born in Newtownards, County Down, in 1844 and pursued several occupations before founding the North Down Herald newspaper in 1880. He was the author of a number of books, perhaps the most enduringly popular of which is Betsy Gray, or Hearts of Down, a novel about the 1798 Rebellion. Through his writing he has left an invaluable record of life and language in North Down and the Ards during the latter half of the 19th Century. He died in 1896 and is buried in the grounds of Bangor Abbey.
