First edition of Gogarty’s autobiography, preceding the English printing, giving an account of his notable life and remarkable circle of friends. Gogarty got the title for his autobiography from a conversation about the terrible weather while riding on a train in Ireland. “I said, ‘It is most extraordinary weather for this time of year.’ He replied, ‘Ah, it isn’t this time of year at all!’” NCBEL, IV, 283.
