About This Item

1875. Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1875. One preliminary page undated ads. Original terra-cotta cloth, beveled. First Edition of Henry James's second book, which consisted of either 1500 (per E&L) or 1578 (per Blanck) copies. Published in the same year as his first (A PASSIONATE PILGRIM), this is a collection of travel sketches from his journeys around Europe in 1872-1874. This copy is in the first binding state, with "J.R. Osgood & Co." at the foot of the spine (later copies read "Houghton, Osgood & Co." and then "Houghton, Mifflin & Co."). The cloth color is terra-cotta; other copies were in purple or green, without priority. It is a bright, near-fine copy (minor rubbing at the corners). Supino 2.4.0; Edel & Laurence A2a; Blanck 10530.
