About this Item

First edition, first state with no ads at back. 8vo, publisher s original brown cloth pictorially decorated and lettered in black and gilt on the spine and upper cover. (6), 229. An essentially fine copy with only light evidence of age. A CORNERSTONE OF POST-CIVIL WAR LITERATURE AND ONE OF THE GREAT BOOKS OF LIFE IN THE OLD SOUTH. A collection of seven romantic tales, this was Cable's first published book. George Cable led a varied and interesting life, including stints in the Confederate Army, in newspaper work in New Orleans and as a writer. He became known in American literature as an artist and a social chronicler, using, for example Creole, in addition to English. His writings span the American South and Cable was considered the "leader in the noteworthy literary movement which has influenced nearly all southern writers" since the Civil War. In this literary school, the primary emphasis was on the portrayal of "local scenes, characters and historical episodes with accuracy instead of merely imaginative romanticism, and to interest readers by fidelity and sympathy in the portrayal of things well known to the authors." Cable published widely. Bookseller Inventory # 13460
