Octavo, title page printed in orange and black, original decorated red cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, t.e.g., fore and bottom edges rough-trimmed. First edition. Thirteen stories by William Dean Howells, Constance Fenimore Woolson and others first published in HARPER'S MAGAZINE. "One in this series of anthologies edited by Howells, a gathering in of the fruit of his exhortations (as an editor at THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY and at HARPER'S, as well as a novelist himself) to American writers, going back forty years, to open their eyes to the dramatic potential in the here and now; to write as Americans, in a vigorous, democratic, realistic style rather than produce weak-tea copies of European models. The achievements of Mark Twain, whose literary judgment was shaped by Howells more than anyone else, may rank as the finest part of this literary harvest; but there's hardly a writer from this period (as evidenced in these anthologies) who did not benefit from the reformist zeal of his aesthetics." - Robert Eldridge. Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 H-441. BAL 9775. Some wear to cloth at lower rear corner tip, a bright, very good copy. (#116717). N° de réf. du libraire 116717
