About this Item

Mary Clemmer Ames (1831 - 1884) was perhaps the most respected woman journalist of her time, working for several New York newspapers during her career. "Ten Years in Washington" a collection of her work for the New York City Independent, earned her a national audience that her novels and other writing did not. First Edition, Later Printing, sold only by subscription. 6 x 8 3/4 inches, 608 pages in black cloth-covered boards with author's name stamped in gold on front cover and gilt lettering and design on spine. Frontispiece portrait of the author, 47 other engraved illustrations. Boards show only minor wear at corners, edges and spine ends and touch of surface wear. Text shows previous owner's signature on fep. Text edges show some soiling and text itself lightly age-toned with occasional small stains. O/w, boards and text are clean, complete and unmarked; binding is tight and square. No tears, creasing or chipping. A very well-cared-for copy of an intelligent observer's perspective of the Victorian Era life and times in Washington, D.C. [Sorry, due to the book's size and weight, we cannot accept priority/express orders or orders from outside the U.S. without additional postage.]. Bookseller Inventory # 005528
