Description :

12mo, pp. [i-iv] [1] 2-224 [note: page iv is mispaginated "vi"], contemporary full leather, red leather title piece affixed to spine panel. First edition. The first part of the second of Brown's four Gothic novels, a non-supernatural study of villainy which contains a remarkably vivid description of the yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia. Part two of ARTHUR MERVYN (not present here) was published separately in 1800. "Brown's place in literary history is not altogether due to the fact that he was the first American who tried to live by his pen or even that he was the first American novelist who won an international hearing. He continues to be occasionally read for his intrinsic merits -- for the somber intensity which, given a chance with any but superficial readers, outweighs his shambling structure and his verbose, stilted language. Like Poe and Hawthorne, whom he in several respects anticipates, Brown had a personal acquaintance with the dark moods which he enlarged and projected in his novels. He had an eager intellectual curiosity which gives his work, even at its most naïve, a certain air of range and significance." - DAB. BAL 1498. Wright (I) 418. Petter, The Early American Novel, pp. 334-40; 408-10. The Edward Percy Rich copy with his small leather bookplate affixed to the front paste-down. Leather worn at edges, patch-ins on rear panel near joint and at bottom edge of spine panel, inner hinges strengthened with Japanese paper, scattered tanning and foxing throughout, inked names bleached out on title page, patch-in to blank lower right corner of title page, wax stain on p. 64 affecting a few words of text on lines 9-13 and loss of several words on line 11 on page 65; 60x35 mm chips from upper right corners of leaves T3 and T4 (pages 211-214) with loss to first twelve lines of text on each page. Not a distinguished copy, but a book now uncommon in the trade. Enclosed in a custom black quarter-leather folding box. (#134901). N° de réf. du libraire

Description du livre Printed and Published by H. Maxwell, Philadelphia, 1799. Hardcover. First Edition. vi (but actually iv), 224pp. Modern brown mottled half calf over marbled boards, spine with raised bands and decorated and lettered in gold. With the misspelled name on page 108. This was the first part of a Gothic romance by the first US professional writer (the second part was published in 1800). "CBB [Charles Brockden Brown] is perhaps of more importance for his transmutation of the US wilderness, in a novel like Arthur Mervyn (1798-9), into a hallucinated labyrinth-like landscape; and for his extremely early use of a city like Philadelphia, in the same novel, in passages that convey a sense of genuine urban fantasy. His influence on 19th century writers like Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allan Poe was very considerable." The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, eds. Clute and Grant, 1997, p. 143. Text block is age-toned, scattered foxing throughout, professional mends to the edges of the last four leaves. A very good+ copy. BAL 1498. Wright I.418. ; Octavo. N° de réf. du libraire 24840
