No jacket, no publisher date (address dated 1854), lettering to front board and spine rubbed, bookplate to front paste-down endpaper, pages toned. 489 pp. Andy Rooney was a fellow who had the most singularly ingenious knack of doing everything the wrong way; disappointment waited on all affairs in which he bore a part, and destruction was at his fingers' ends... Samuel Lover (24 February 1797 – 6 July 1868) was an Irish songwriter, composer, novelist, and a painter of portraits, chiefly miniatures.  Lover produced a number of Irish songs, of which several – including The Angel's Whisper, Molly Bawn, and The Four-leaved Shamrock – attained great popularity. He also wrote novels, of which Rory O'Moore (in its first form a ballad), and Handy Andy are the best known, and short Irish sketches which, with his songs, he combined into a popular entertainment called Irish Nights or Irish Evenings.
