Yekl: A Tale of the New York Ghetto
D. Appleton & Co, New York 1896 - Cahan's very scarce first book, a high-point of 19th-century literary naturalism and one of the key documents of the Jewish-American immigrant experience. Adapted in 1975 for Joan Silver's Oscar-nominated film "Hester Street." Though adequately represented in institutional collections, "Yekl" has long been a rarity in the trade; we find no copy at auction since 1984. WRIGHT III 876. 12mo. Publisher's illustrated wheat cloth; 190pp + 10pp publisher's ads. Cloth boards somewhat foxed, with a faint splash-stain to front cover; moderate to heavy foxing to endpapers and scattered foxing to text throughout. Still a tight, not unattractive copy, about Very Good. [Attributes: First Edition]
