About this Item

Two volumes, octavos, original quarter muslin, boards, original printed paper spine labels soiled and chipped, spines lightly faded, contents slightly age browned and trifle foxed but not offensively so. Altogether, a good set in respectable original condition. Harriette Smythies wrote, according to Block, eight novels of which Cousin Geoffrey was her second and her best known work. Hook doubtless contributed his own expertise in the editing of it and though he tried to persuade Mrs. Smythies to allow him to edit her other novels, nothing came of it. Her novels had a low survival rate. Sadleir had none, and Wolff had but one. Neither had the first English or the first American edition of Cousin Geoffrey. First American edition.
