This booklet is marked as though it were the original published by Will H. Coleman. It's even dated 1885, but everything about this book is contemporary. Nonetheless it's an interesting one if you are interested in New Orleans and especially the Creole language and culture. The booklet measures 6-1/4" x 9-1/4" with 42 pages including index. Book is presented in both English and Creole. The author, Lafcadio Hearn was Irish, but worked in New Orleans as a newspaper reporter and then migrated to Ohio. Eventually he moved to Japan, married a Japanese woman, had children and wrote many books about Japan. This book is quite good because it also offers notes in English about the meanings and origins of the proverbs. Beautiful condition too.
