THE MEMBER: An Autobiography. Edited by Ian A. Gordon.
Edinburgh: Scottish Academic Press, 1975. Octavo, xiii, 128 pp. Rose boards. Ink name to front free endpaper, else fine. Price-clipped dust jacket lightly tanned to spine and margins of panels; else fine. "By an accident in publishing history THE MEMBER has only appeared previously in one edition, in 1832. It is reissued now not only as being one of John Galt's best and most lively novels but also as a social document of unusual interest. It is in fact the first political novel in English, a shrewd picture of the old House of Commons before the passing of the 1832 Reform Bill." - jacket flap. 701120843
