Product description

Sid Puddiefoot

Patrick MacGill

Herbert Jenkins Limited, London; nd 1926?; 2nd printing.

Hardback; 135 x 190 mm; pictorial orange boards with titles on spine and front cover, publisher’s logo on back; 347 pages and 2 unpaginated leaves of advertisements for other Patrick MacGill novels. No dust jacket.

The book is in fair condition. The binding is sound though the book is cocked. Very few marks on the covers with bumping ends of spine. Page end tanning and foxing, and some internal tanning and foxing. Front paste-down endpaper annotated in pencil “F H J Anthony”, and front free endpaper annotated in pencil “F H J Anthony 45 Station Terrace Dowlais Glam”. Small chip page 307/308 with no loss of text.

Patrick MacGill (1889 – 1963) was an Irish journalist, poet, and novelist, known as "The Navvy Poet" because he had worked as a navvy before he began writing.

“Sid Puddiefoot, a Cockney Coster, had early enlisted in the war. After active service in France, he was sent out to India and on the way he was washed overboard. He was picked up by a brig, the captain of which was bent on conquering a mysterious kingdom in Africa. After many adventures in an African forest, Sid Puddiefoot alone reached the kingdom, and because of his rifle and machine gun and his superior wisdom of the West, was made King. How the Coster rules the kingdom, the laws that he made, and his subsequent return to England, makes a story of absorbing interest.”

The story reflects the attitudes of the time to such matters.
