Author of Peck's Bad Boy

Author, Politician, Publisher, and Statesman

James H. Lambert, New York (1871)

This New York publisher only printed one Peck book - The Adventures of One Terence McGrant. It was published in 1871.

The Terence McGrant sketches were first published in the Ripon Representative in 1866/1867. Peck left Ripon and went to New York with M. M. (Brick) Pomeroy in 1869. He continued to write the McGrant comic sketches at that time and it is those sketches that make up the "Adventures of One Terence McGrant".

James H. Lambert was a newspaper colleague / friend of George Peck when Peck was working in New York. Lambert published the sketches in book form. Lambert went on to a career in the newspaper business becoming the managing editor of the Philadelphia Times. I can find no evidence that Lambert published any other books.

This title has been seen in two colors with blind stamped covers. (7.5 x 5.25)
