8vo. The first separate printing of "Old Mr. Flood," which was produced at the time The New Yorker ran the story. Mitchell thoroughly revised the text after its publication and it finally was published as a book in 1948. This narrative of an unreconstructed denizen of the Fulton Fish Market is widely considered to be among Mitchell's finest character profiles. New Yorker offprints were issued in such small numbers that any of them may be described as rare. Paper covers a bit age-worn, else fine. N° de ref. de la librería 20922
