A propos de cet article

Octavo, title page printed in red and black, original red cloth stamped in black, all edges untrimmed. First edition. Despite the book's title, this is a short novel (not a group of stories or sketches) about a mysterious, wealthy, beautiful young widow who, with her young son and servant (a female dwarf), move to a small town in Vermont on the White River in 1856. The widow is a "new woman": a freethinker, an abolitionist and a philanthropist who home schools her son, doesn't attend church and builds homes for the poor on her property. This doesn't sit well with many of the residents of the village, who attempt to convert her to their ways. Part reform novel, part domestic melodrama, perhaps written long before it was published. "Compliments of the Author" inked on the front free endpaper. Not in Wright, American Fiction, 1876-1900. Cloth a bit marked and rubbed, spine panel a bit sunned, a very good copy. A scarce book.
