4 GRANTMYRE, Barbara. MOON, Henry. Lunar Rogue. First Edition in dustjacket.
Brunswick Press, Fredericton, N.B., 1963, 
GRANTMYRE, Barbara. Lunar Rogue. Fredericton, N.B. : Brunswick Press, 1963.First Printing. Pp (10),11-177,(3) including plates. 8vo, brown cloth, wit h gilt lettering to spine. Laugher p 215. The story of Henry Moon. "'My name is Henry Moon,' he said, but often it was Henry More, or Smith, or Newman. Whatever alias he used, he was always Henry, a most fascinating rogue. People who watched him in prison were sure he possessed supernatural powers. How else could a condemned horse-thief awaiting hanging remove his fetters,handcuffs and chains, night after night, and leave them in separated piece s on his bed, or hide them in a cell that offered no place of concealment? How but by magic could he construct a puppet show of many actors and make the characters tell fortunes, using Henry as their mouthpiece? Where did he get the ability to tell utter strangers who visited the prison secret details of their past lives, followed by prophecies of what was about to happen to them, unexpected happenings often verified by events a few days later? In 1814 Henry must have been the most famous man in New Brunswick, for his exploits were not only sensational but baffling in their mastery. His place of origin was never established but he came apparently from the south of England. The known story of his adventures begins with his arrival, looking for work, in Windsor, Nova Scotia, in 1812. At Rawdon he was hired by a farmer, John Bond, whose daughter he married a year later. Soon he began a career of larceny and was forced to move to New Brunswick, where he set up as ahorse-dealer in Saint John. In July, 1814, he was arrested on a charge of stealing a horse. It was when he was condemned to death that his gaoler's troubles began! Later Henry obtained a pardon, and after a brief episode in Nova Scotia again he moved to the United States. There too the newspapers made him known by their stories of his strange performances in prison and his escapes. In 'Lunar Rogue', Barbara Grantmyre has retold most effectively the dramatic and puzzling real-life story of Henry Moon." - from the dustjacket. Very good in lightly edgeworn dustjacket. 30.00
