About This Item

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1945. Historical novel of two English/Irish cousins who emigrate to New York before the Civil War, near Lake Erie. Of interest is the 'folk art' binding, in full red calf with amatuerish but lovingly tooled title on the front cover and recycled Edwardian endsheets. General wear, some scuffing, spine faded, minimalist bookplate opposite the title page. Text clean; [10], 533 pages. Unique!. First Edition. Full Leather. Good/No Jacket. Octavo.
