Book Description Harper and Brothers, New York, 1899. First Edition. An ambitious and controversial "problem novel" by the Kentucky-born feminist author/actress, dealing with such Victorian taboos as consanguinous sexuality, birth-control, and suicide; the book's frank portrayal of a Southern family's degeneracy led one contemporary critic to describe it as ".a nightmare begotten on a reading of Nietzsche's philosophy." WRIGHT III:4584. Octavo. Publisher's green cloth, stamped in red and gilt on spine and front cover; 1-522, [1]pp. Third issue, with final page number deleted and author's name on title page. Fine, bright copy; hand-lettered bookplate of Elizabeth B. Estes to front endpaper. Earlier issues include only the author's pseudonym, "C.E. Raimond," on the title page. Seller Inventory # 23626
