Washington Square. Illustrated by George du Maurier.
New York, Harper 1881. - FIRST EDITION. Foolscap octavo, pp.266; 6, adverts. Publisher's original pictorial green cloth stamped in dark brown and gilt, coated brown endpapers. A tight copy with sound paper joints; some pencil notes to flyleaf. Cloth is bright and would be fine but for a vertical crease to upper cover. Nonetheless an attractive copy of an elusive first edition. Henry James classic short novel is a deceptively simple tragicomedy that recounts the conflict between a dull but sweet daughter and her brilliant, domineering father. The book is often compared to Jane Austen's work for the clarity and grace of its prose and its intense focus on family relationships. BAL [10551], Edel and Laurence [A15a] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
