HARRY BROWN AT BARCHESTER.
Cincinnati: Benziger, 1930. Hardcover first edition - Uncommon early novel for older boys by this Jesuit priest - a contemporary review described it as "a sparkling story of Catholic High School life. Throughout we enjoy thrilling plays made by Harry Brown, left-half on the Barchester Minors, guard on the Minor Five, and their snappy second baseman. Delightful incidents of the classroom, amusing episodes outside of class, and unexepected occurrences in the big university of life are neatly and artistically painted in this enjoyable picture of Sophomore activities at Barchester High. Boys will admire and like, and will want to imitate Harry Brown 'a real boy of boys, excellent at games, cheerful, ready for jollity and a joke-even a fight for a good cause,'and a fine student."
