First printing of this re-issue of a highly respected novel. Very clean book in original clear mylar dust jacket. Clean pale gray boards with black cloth corners, spine, lovely black and white photograph of Maine coast set in on cover. No bumping or wear. Binding is tight and square, pages and edges are clean and bright (brief previous owner inscription neatly penned at top edge of title page). Illustrated with beautiful historical photographs. 144 pages. Clear mylar cover with printed flaps is unchipped, no tears, not price clipped, slight surface rubbing. Originally published in 1896, this book tells a story spanning three months time in the life of a small coastal town called Dunnett Landing in 19th Century Maine. A lone female visitor arrives and finds lodging with the widowed Mrs. Todd, the town's herbalist, who introduces the visitor to many of the town's inhabitants. The visitor's impressions of the people she meets starts out simply, then almost invisibly they crescendo into a deep, intense human portrait. Writing in 1925 on the subject of this exquisite short novel, Willa Cather called it a "Masterpiece." This handsomely designed re-typeset edition is prefaced by a portfolio of photographs of coastal Maine during the era portrayed in the story.
