About this Item

Leather backed cloth in slip case; decorative leather, gilt lettering and decorations on leather spine. Slip case (also fine) has spine label. No. 1353 of 1500 copies signed by the illustrator and printed at The Thistle Press, Mt. Vernon, NY. Illustrations. Introduced by Louis S. Auchincloss. From the Introduction: "The villain of Washington Square need not be sinister or dangerous, but simply a mildly worthless, thoroughly lazy, gently despicable character who, although related to a 'good family', is still not quite a gentleman. For we are made to feel from the beginning that Morris Townsend never really belongs to the society of Washington Square. He looks, at first glance, as if he did, but at a second he is a bit too handsome, a bit too soft, a bit too glib. And then he is mercenary and poor in a world where it is only permissible to be mercenary and rich". Bookseller Inventory # 205
