About this Item: Robert Carter & Brothers, New York, 1863. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First American Edition. Translated from the French by Mary L. Booth. Original green cloth binding, decoratively blindstamped. Previous owner's inscription on ffep, scattered foxing, marginal chip at top edge of table of contents page otherwise Very Good. Frontispiece illustration with tissue guard. OCLC: 10769033 Madame de Gasparin (1813-1894) was born Catherine Valérie Boissier in Geneva and raised in a wealthy patrician family. In 1837 she married the Count Agenor de Gasparin. She and her husband were both successful authors. Madame de Gasparin's writings on morals had a particularly wide audience, especially "Marriage from a Christian Point of View" [1842-43] and Human Sorrows [1838]. The stories gathered in Vesper are excellent examples of Mme Gasparin's Calvinist views embodied in compelling literary style. As one contemporary reviewer put it: " In one part of Vesper, Madame de Gasparin rises above the level of common life to parable. The story of "Emmanuel" is an answer to Mr. Hawthorne's "Goodman Brown," written, as Madame de Gasparin bitterly puts it, "to establish the universal reign of Satan," as if life were in very earnest a witches' carnival, with Satan swaying the hearts of those who seem noblest and purest.; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. Seller Inventory # 40457
