Edgar Huntly, or, Memoirs of a Sleepwalker - FIRST EDITION Vol III - 1799 - Literary History
Maxwell 1799 - Here you have a book that is 214 years old representing literary history as it was published in the early years of American novels by one of the first and most respected authors of that long ago era. Charles Brockden Brown (January 17, 1771 – February 22, 1810), an American novelist, historian, and editor of the Early National period, is generally regarded by scholars as the most ambitious and accomplished US novelist before James Fenimore Cooper. He is the most frequently studied and republished practitioner of the "early American novel," or the US novel between 1789 and roughly 1820. Although Brown was by no means the first American novelist, as some early criticism claimed, the breadth and complexity of his achievement as a writer in multiple genres (novels, short stories, essays and periodical writings of every sort, poetry, historiography, reviews) makes him a crucial figure in US literature and culture of the 1790s and first decade of the 19th century, and a significant public intellectual in the wider Atlantic print culture and public sphere of the era of the French Revolution. The book is in good shape and as you can see has some pencil marks on the title page but none on the pages of the text block. This is a rare piece of history and offered at a reasonable price.
