"Even though the text dates from 1918, it is incredible how much of what the author describes (landmarks, beaches, buildings, customs) still exists today. And how many of the concerns of a century ago (over-development, automobile traffic, over-fishing) persist! Also interesting are the people and places lost to history, but whose tales live on in current Cape museums, books, and tourist attractions. Descriptions of Cape towns are beautifully written, and accompanying sketches are lovely." Reviewer. Very clean contents.; B&W Illustrations; 12mo; 239 pages

Queer Judson, Lincoln, Joseph
3 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

Head Tide, Lincoln, Joseph C.
4 Lincoln, Joseph C. Head Tide
New York D. Appleton & Company 1932 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Fair dust jacket 
Blue cover has minor spotting. Dust has chips and tears with both front and back flap repaired with tape but now in brodart protective cover. Has former owners book plate in front. JOSEPH C. LINCOLN, author of Head Tide an Appleton publication, was born in Brewster, Mass,, on Feb. 13, 1870. Brewster is a typical Cape Cod town, settled by the Pilgrims soon after the landing at Plymouth, and was named for Elder Brewster. But Mr. Lincoln's Cape Cod, as portrayed in his stories, couldn't be found on any map. "His" Cape Cod is not bounded by stilted lines of latitude nor formal lines of longitude. If it suits the purpose of his story to locate an inlet where nature has built promontory, to erect a village in place of woods and marshes, the author has "never hesitated to do so." "Head Tide" is, like the thirty-one volumes which have preceded it in the twenty-eight years since Lincoln's first novel, "Cap'n Eri," was published [1904], about a Cape Cod community, and it is, like most of the later novels, the story of the conflict between an "import" and the natives. "Head Tide" is a good, man sized story of a good man sized job faced with courage. By this time readers are not so completely bedazzled by the quaintness of Mr. Lincoln's characters as they were at first, for they have become accustomed after thirty-one volumes to the local dialect which drove the readers of "Cap'n Eri " into spasms of glee. Scarce if not Rare with dust jacket. ; 7.30 X 5.10 X 1.30 inches
