The Parish of St Mel's

and other verses

by John O'Brien, Illustrated by Bonar Dunlop

Angus and Robertson, 1954 [First Edition], line drawings in text, hardcover with illustrated boards, dustjacket, 

Very Condition, shelf wear, edge wear, surface wear, cover grubby, dustjacket shows wear with chips, tears and small sections missing (see photographs) 

'Twenty-nine editions of John O'Brien's earlier collection of verse, Around the Boree Log, have been published - eloquent proof of the popularity of his writings.  For their appeal is directly to the heart; they celebrate the affections of hearth and home, the comradeship, humour, and unaffected piety of life in the bush.
This second collection will undoubtedly prove as popular as its predecessor, and with its wider appeal may reach even larger public.'
