A propos de cet article

Octavo, inserted frontispiece (photographic portrait of Roe), original decorated blue green cloth stamped in black, red and gold, cream endpapers. First edition. First printing with 1883, 1888 and 1889 copyright dates and "University Press" imprint on copyright page. The major repository of Roe's short fiction. Collects Roe's "Autobiography" and eleven stories, including "Taken Alive," "Found Yet Lost, "The Queen of Spades" and others. Apparently part of a uniform edition, with "The Works of E. P. Roe" printed on front cover. 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 16938. Wright (III) 4621. Not in Hubin (1994). Hint of rubbing to cloth at spine ends and corner tips, else a fine, bright copy.(#117225). N° de réf. du libraire 117225
