The Confessional, and Other Poems [bound with] The Leaderside Legends [bound with] The Wooden Sword [bound with] Days and Nights with Drolls
250, v; 48; 16; and 16 pages. Four books by Brockie bound in a single volume. The first two are poetry, the third is a short story, and the fourth is a collection of short humorous pieces. An interesting sammelband of the Scottish poet and journalist, who spent much of his career editing periodicals in the borderlands. See Reilly, Mid-Victorian Poetry, 1860-1879, pp. 57-58. Of some interest is the fact that The Confessional is a little-known book illustrated with an original photograph of the author mounted to the title-page. Uncommon. First edition (first printing) of at least three of the books; Leaderside Legends may have been published in shorter form in 1856. Half-bound in maroon calf with light wear at the corners.
