Item Description: Wm Jas Hamersley, 1852. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. xxvi+509 pages with frontispiece fold out map, numerous plates, figures, appendixes and index. Octavo (8" x 5") issued in three quarter leather with marbled boards and gilt lettering with raised bands. (Howes D219) Later printing. De Forest was born in Seymour, Connecticut, (then called Humphreysville), the son of a prosperous cotton manufacturer. He did not attend college, but instead pursued independent studies, mainly abroad, where he was a student in Latin, and became a fluent speaker of French, Italian, and Spanish. While yet a youth, he spent four years traveling in Europe, and two years in the Levant, residing chiefly in Syria. In 1850, he again visited Europe, making extensive tours through Great Britain, France, Italy, Germany, Greece, and Asia Minor. From that time, he wrote short stories for periodicals, having already become an author of several books. One of his earliest works, The History of the Indians of Connecticut, from the Earliest known Period to 1850, shows his interest in history. Written from 1847 to 1850, The History of the Indians of Connecticut is critical of the settlers treatment of the Pequots and of King Phillip's War, which is somewhat surprising given the early date of the scholarship. The non-fictional work also foreshadows De Forest's later fiction in its subject, realism, and occasional violence. The honorary degree of A. M. was conferred upon him by Amherst College in 1859. Condition: Book plate on front paste down, some occasional foxing. A very good copy. Bookseller Inventory # A0508
