Lacks half-title and title page, but excerpt to p. 4 is dated 1869. Octavo, bound in sixes, pp. 202. Large vignette to title page of “Joe Wilson as “Geordey Had the Bairn”. Modern purple quarter cloth with mauve paper-covered boards and printed paper title label to spine. Binding Fine. Leaves somewhat toned and soiled, and several creased to corners and/or creased and nicked to fore-edge (affecting extreme edge only). A few local newspaper clippings loosely inserted. No annotation or inscriptions. A Very Good copy overall.
Humorous songs and verses by the Geordie Bard himself, who sang and wrote in his native dialect. Wilson (1841-1875) performed at concert halls in the mid nineteenth century, and his most famous work is “Keep yer feet still Geordie Hinny”, which has stood the test of time and is frequently performed in North East England today.
