Descripción

This beautiful 294 page Limited Edition, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in BOTH the publishers original binding and original slipcase.The binding is dark blue wove cloth with light blue brocade panel front cover; lettered in gold on the spine. Top edge gilded. And this baby is like new. Copy No. 1968 of 2,000 signed by the illustrator. With publisher's slipcase as issued. Also like new. Illustrated by Lily Harmon with both color and black and white sketches. Introduction by Arthur Mizener. When Scribner's published Mrs. Wharton's novel in the fall of 1905, neither they nor its author suspected it would be a runaway bestseller. Within a year the publisher printed and sold 100,000 copies. Their belief in Mrs. Wharton's talents had been more than justified. The book, with ETHAN FROME (1913) and THE AGE OF INNOCENCE (1920), continues to be thought by critics and readers alike one of the writer's great achievements. And, by the way, this seemingly routine offering was carefully selected, professionally graded, and delicately stored in a well-controlled archive vault by Hirschfeld Galleries, a bibliographic keystone of Saint Louis, Missouri since 1931. Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings such as this one which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves. Read to learn and enjoy; go forth to share and enjoin. And, by the way, this seemingly routine offering of perfection was carefully selected, professionally graded, and delicately stored in a well-controlled archive vault by Hirschfeld Galleries, a bibliographic keystone of Saint Louis, Missouri since 1931.
