A propos de cet article

Octavo, pp. [1-4] [1] 2-188, original pictorial dark green cloth stamped in black, gold and blind, decorated endpapers with publisher's monogram printed in green. First edition. Collects Roe's "Autobiography" and three stories, "The Queen of Spades," "A Ghost on Christmas Eve" and "Taken Alive." Number 112 of "Warne's Star Series." Roe, a clergyman who served as a Union chaplain during the Civil War, took up writing full-time after his novel BARRIERS BURNED AWAY, based on the 1871 Chicago fire, became a bestseller. His attention to moral purpose made popular fiction more palatable to a nation habitually suspicious of it as frivolous if not downright immoral. "His plots, according to Carl Van Doren, were concerned with the 'simultaneous pursuit of wives, fortunes, and salvation.'" - Kunitz and Haycraft, American Authors 1600-1900, p. 659. BAL 16934 (not located, not seen). Hubin (1994), p. 694. Cloth lightly worn at edges, some offsetting to free endpapers, a very good copy. COPAC records 2 copies (National Library of Scotland; Oxford); OCLC records no copies. Rare. (#117224). N° de réf. du libraire 117224
