Paul and Mary, an Indian story
Willian Carlton, Salem, MA 1795 - Originally published in French as Paul et Virginie by Saint-Pierre, who was a naturalist, influential social critic as well as a successful author. A military engineer by training, he was instrumental in popularizing pastoral fiction. Translated from the French by Monfieur De. St. Pierre. The protagonists were changed from Paul and Virginia to Paul and Mary due to cultural incompatibility : Virginia is not simple enough for English readers. The female slave, Marie in the original, becomes Frances and the dog renamed to Tayo to distinguish from the more common dog name, Fidele, which appeared in London at the time. Provenance: Bookplate with landscape-plate of Mary Glubb. Binding is still strong, original covers are chipped and soiled. Foxing through-out. A one of a kind, surviving copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
