(McLoughlin Brothers). Lyrics Inspired by Edward Harrigan; Music by David Braham. The Ten Little Mulligan Guards. New York: McLoughlin Brothers, 1874.
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 finger 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 fictionally inept Irish fraternal organization. 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 an African-American who appears in nearly every illustration. Instructions for using the book to play a game are on the last page. (#kfk805) $750
