About This Item

New York: Scribner's, 1907. First Edition. Only very light rubbing at the extremities, else a fine copy; with a clipped signature of the author tipped in on the front free endpaper; in the rare dust jacket. We have previously had but a single copy in dust jacket, and like this one, it had a plain glassine wrapper under the printed jacket, and was trimmed about 1/8" shorter than the binding. The edges are scraped, the top and bottom of the spine are chipped, and there are some other small chips and tears; a good to very good example.

Synopsis

Madame de Treymes an important, early Edith Wharton novel about the differences between American and European society, published the year she left the United States to take up permanent residency in France.
