What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding

The first American edition of this work. The copy was actually published in 1878, though it states 1879 to the title page, a common mistake found in these first editions. 'The Europeans' is a novel about two European visitors visiting family in New England, America. It is set in the middle of the nineteenth century, and tells the experiences of two European siblings in America, Eugenia Munster, and Felix Young. Written by Henry James, a nineteenth century American novelist. He is considered to be a key figure in the transition between literary realism and literary modernism. He is often considered to be one of the greatest novelist in the English language.

Condition

In the original publisher's cloth binding. Externally, generally smart. Light bumping to the head and tail of the spine and to the extremities. Minor markings to the boards and spine. A few bumps to the front board, denting the cloth. Front endpaper is detached but present. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are lightly age-toned and generally clean with the odd spot and odd mark.

Very Good
