1901 A Kentucky Cardinal and Aftermath
What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Limited Edition, Publishers' Original Binding
James Lane Allen was an American novelist and short story writer whose work, including these two novels, often depict the culture and dialects of his native Kentucky. His work is characteristic of the late nineteenth century local color era, when writers sought to capture the vernacular in their fiction. This is an unnumbered copy of two hundred and fifty copies of this large paper edition, printed in October 1910. Illustrated throughout from drawings by Hugh Thomson, the notable Irish Illustrator best known for his pen-and-ink illustrations of works by authors such as Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, and J. M. Barrie.
In the publisher's original white cloth binding with elaborate gilt detail to the front board. Externally, excellent with minor shelfwear to extremities and slight fading to spine. Small mark to tail of spine. Front hinge slightly strained after endpapers. Internally firmly bound. Pages very bright and clean throughout. Foxed only to the first and last few pages.
