Writer and poet James Whitcomb Riley (1849-1916) is known for his works that are written in dialect, and it appears the title of this collection of works is also in dialect; even the title is a strange version of what I would suppose is to be Neighborly Poems, not Neghborly Poems. He had to have had a great sense of humor. This smart looking red-bound book is trimmed in gold embossing with the title and author also in gold. There is only one illustration at the front of the book and the rest of the book are poems and short stories. The 7 1/8” x 4 ¾” book in in very good condition with all of the pages intact. The cover shows a little wear, but not much considering the book is around 120 years old. There is a small piece of tape stuck on the back of the book; it isn’t holding any tears or rips together; so I assume it accidentally got there. I haven’t attempted to pull it off.
