Rutgers University Press 1962 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
Dust has chips, but now in mylar protective cover. The author assembled some of the writing of Howell. William Dean Howells (March 1, 1837 May 11, 1920) was an American realist novelist, literary critic, and playwright, nicknamed "The Dean of American Letters". He was particularly known for his tenure as editor of The Atlantic Monthly, as well as for his own prolific writings, including the Christmas story "Christmas Every Day" and the novels The Rise of Silas Lapham and A Traveler from Altruria. Howells was a Christian socialist whose ideals were greatly influenced by Russian writer Leo Tolstoy.[21] He joined a Christian socialist group in Boston between 1889 and 1891[22] and attended several churches, including the First Spiritual Temple and the Church of the Carpenter, the latter being affiliated with the Episcopal Church and the Society of Christian Socialists.[23] These influences led him to write on issues of social justice from a moral and egalitarian point of view, being critic of the social effects of industrial capitalism.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 148 pages

Queer Judson, Lincoln, Joseph
20 Lincoln, Joseph Queer Judson
Bristol, Ct D. Appleton 1925 First Edition; Various Hardcover Good in Good dust jacket Signed by Author
Author signed "Sincerely yours, Joseph C. Lincoln". Book and dust show wear. Hinges weak. Scarce copy with dust that has chips but has been covered with archival sleeve. Joseph Crosby Lincoln (February 13, 1870 March 10, 1944) was an American author of novels, poems, and short stories, many set in a fictionalized Cape Cod. Lincoln's work frequently appeared in popular magazines such as the Saturday Evening Post and The Delineator. Lincoln was aware of contemporary naturalist writers, such as Frank Norris and Theodore Dreiser, who used American literature to plumb the depths of human nature, but he rejected this literary exercise. Lincoln claimed that he was satisfied "spinning yarns" that made readers feel good about themselves and their neighbors. Two of his stories have been adapted to film.Lincoln was born in Brewster, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod, and his mother moved the family to Chelsea, Massachusetts, a manufacturing city outside Boston, after the death of his father. Lincoln's literary career celebrating "old Cape Cod" can partly be seen as an attempt to return to an Eden from which he had been driven by family tragedy. Lincoln died in 1944, at the age of 73, in Winter Park, Florida; 7.40 X 5.30 X 1.20 inches; 362 pages; Signed by Author
