Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 2199854

Condition: Near Fine


First edition. 1993 Hard Cover. 406 pp. 8vo. Aided by the gifted Mainwaring, Wharton delivers a posthumous gift to both the high and the low of brow with this novel, which was left unfinished at her death in 1937 and published in its incomplete state a year later.

Here, a Mrs. St. George, a matron of the 1870s whose husband has means but no social standing, schemes to advance her dau... View more info
