About this Item

[7] pp 8-192, pp 32 ads. The first English edition of Harte's four Californian Stories. Attractively produced as a yellowback, the illustration on the front cover shows a rescue attempt in progress, with a bearded man holding out a rope to a woman balanced uncertainly on a rocky ledge. The spine has been neatly relaid with complete text and the all-important pictorial advertisements on the front and rear endpapers. The book comes from the Gladstone family's ancestral home at Fasque in Scotland with a 'Fasque' book label on the front board and the signature of 'J R Gladstone' (British Prime Minister, W E Gladstone's older brother, John Robert Gladstone) written underneath Bret Harte's printed name on the front board. An attractive association. Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like more information about this book. Bookseller Inventory # 001640
