"Apart from his activities as an abolitionist, Quincy was also well known among literary people as a writer of fiction and biography. His WENSLEY: A STORY WITHOUT A MORAL (1854; reprinted in WENSLEY, AND OTHER STORIES, 1885), a sympathetic study of early American society, reveals a cultivated mind, a genial humor, and a graceful style, and was called by Whittier 'the most readable book of the kind since Hawthorne's BLITHEDALE ROMANCE.' In THE HAUNTED ADJUTANT, AND OTHER STORIES (1885) are collected some of his best short stories" - DAB. Wright (II) 1989. Small private owner's book label affixed to front paste-down. Slight spine lean, cloth lightly worn at spine ends and corner tips, endpapers a bit foxed, a very good copy. (#110276). N° de réf. du libraire 110276
