FURTHER HAPS AND MISHAPS TO SI KLEGG AND SHORTY. The Second Year of Their Service.
Washington, D.C: The National Tribune, 1898. Octavo, tan paper covers embossed in a leather grain. 448 pp. Number 15 in the publisher's Old Glory Library series. Printed publication date on spine is Nov. 8, 1897. Covers rubbed to the joints, corners creased. Text printed on cheap paper now yellowed; pages 385 to end are dog-eared to outer corners; some marginal damp stains; two inch tear to lower margin of title leaf (no printing affected); in all just a good, sound copy of a fragile book. The third book in the Si Klegg series of humourous Civil War stories. The ads on the inside of the covers state that the books are "substantially bound in leatherette", but the binding here is only paper stamped with a lizard skin grain. Si and Shorty were with the 200th Indiana, and the stories of their adventures during the war originally appeared in the pages of the newspaper The National Tribune. Wright, American Fiction, mentions the series but does not describe any. The author's name is not given in this book.
