Without DJ, as issued. Re-presents, in one comprehensive and elegant volume, all of Sarah Orne Jewett's ground-breaking achievement. Headlined by her masterpiece, "The Country of The Pointed Firs", one of the greatest American novels ever written. "Classics of American fiction, memorializing the traditions, manners, and dialect of Maine coast natives at the turn of the 20th century. In luminous evocations of their lives, Maine-born Jewett created startlingly real portraits of individual New Englanders and a warm, humorous, and compassionate vision of New England character" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Sarah Orne Jewett collectors. These titles are great books. The First Slipcased Edition was distributed to libraries and LOA subscribers only. None of the copies were sold to the public.
