Descripción

Opie Read. WIVES OF THE PROPHET. Chicago: Laird & Lee, no date. Copyright 1894, presumed First Edition. 12mo., frontispiece plate after painting, 287 pages including numerous text illustrations after drawings, plus 7 pages advertising. Brown linen with gold and silver stamped decoration and titles. Moderate edge wear, some through, moderate rubbing, particularly along spine edges, some handling, spine titles partially obscured, both end papers cracked, web undamaged, previous seller’s price neatly in magic marker ffep, all pages browned and quite brittle (overall Good plus). Interesting piece of fiction featuring a fictitious but very credible religious sect begun in 1697 in the back woods of Tennessee. The story pits the strict precepts of the religious community against the mores of the ostensibly more civilized society that surrounds it. It features in particular the travails of the women selected for a three year obligation as the virgin brides of the Prophet. N° de ref. de la librería 002020
