The Ten Little Mulligan Guards
New York: McLoughlin Brothers, 1874. Soft Cover. Very Good. Soft Cover. Oblong 8vo. Complete with 12 leaves including the cover. Each page (printed on one side only) shows a colorful representation of the ever decreasing Mulligan ranks. Light wear. Clean pages with an occasional smudge. Very neatly mended spine and faint corner crease on front cover; otherwise near fine. No doubt inspired by Harrigan's incredibly successful series of Broadway shows about the Mulligan Guards, a fictionallly inept Irish fraternal organization. Much like the notorious "Ten Little Niggers," the guards die off one by one on each page, which includes new lyrics to the score of the chorus of the hit song, "The Mulligan Guard." The penultimate guard to die is "The Nig," (and African-American) who appears in nearly every illustration. Instructions for using the book to play a game are on the last page.
