New York: Harper & Brothers, 1896. Hard Cover. [6], 147, [5] p.: frontispiece, 2 leaves of plates, 1 in-text illustration; 16 cm. Contemporary polished calf spine extending one third of the way across the boards; green silk over the rest of the boards with a cardinal stamped in red and black on the front board. Black morocco spine label with gilt-tooled title. Top page edges gilt. Green and gilt floral endpapers. Publisher's catalog on four pages following text. Inscription on blank leaf following front free endpaper: S. Elizabeth Weidman, Xmas '97. Although dated 1894, this was apparently issued in 1896, as the list of the author's works following the text includes the sequel to this, Aftermath, published in 1896. This is the classic work by James Lane Allen (1849-1925), featuring a romance set in his native Kentucky before the Civil War. In Very Good Condition: edges and corners are rubbed; silk is slightly rubbed; fixed front endpaper has small scrape near top edge; pages and plates are clean and tight. Very Good. Item #001917
