Two popular works reissued together. This edition dated from Oxford copy.
Two popular works reissued together in a cheap six-penny edition with a striking cover design. 'Through green glasses' consists of a series of historical or pseudo-historical episodes, purporting to be related by a humorous Waterford countryman, Dan Banim, as seen from his point of view. In 'The voyage of the Ark' the story of Noah and the Ark is the basis for 'a series of farcical episodes related in brogue' for juveniles. Downey, publisher and novelist, was the son of a shipowner. He went to London when he was twenty-two and became a partner in the publishing firm of Ward and Downey. In 1894 he founded his own publishing firm of Downey & Co. Both of these firms published Irish authors. His writings include humorous sketches, sea stories, fairy tales, sensational stories, a biography of Lever, a volume of reminiscences, a history of Waterford and two novels including a mystery set in Dunmore East, Waterford.
