The Country of the Pointed Firs

Boston: Houghton, Mifflin, 1896. First Edition; BAL 10910; printing 2. Original cloth. Very good or better in an older, somewhat worn, custom slipcase. An excellent presentation copy; inscribed with what appears to be a private joke, “J. Appleton Brown from S.O.Jewett, December 1896. (Hush money).” Brown was a successful American artist, who, along with Childe Hassam and others, was closely associated with Celia Thaxter. Jewett’s inscriptions are not of great rarity, but this is the book widely conceded to be her best work, and is certainly her most successful and enduring one.
