Two Volumes: Irish author and physician Charles J Lever (1806-1872) began in 1833 to publish stories in the Dublin University Magazine, with his character Harry Lorrequer, in book form by 1839. A keen observer, and rascally with early writings, he was a prolific author, inspired by his own extravagant speding style. Early years he traveled aboard an emigrant ship to Canada, and later toured and lived in parts of Europe. Never having been to battle, his scenes in the 2 other V. I books are considered among the best written. Heavy volumes with clean interiors, the novels have a 2-column format for easier reading.
