What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, Scarce, With Dustwrapper
This is a first edition of the work, in original publisher's cloth binding and clipped dust wrapper.
This was the first novel of American writer, Percival Wilde, who was best known for his one-act plays. Wilde studied and lived in New York in the late Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century.
This particular work follows the story of an ambitious young woman named Molly May, who stops at nothing to get what she wants. Wilde explores the lengths his character will go to in order to escape her poor upbringing. Set partly in New York in the late Nineteenth Century, and partly in a small Connecticut town in the Twentieth Century.
