3 Page, Thomas Nelson In ole Virginia; Or, Marse Chan and other stories,
C. Scribner's sons 1887 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Green cloth cover worn. Vines within red outlined box on cover. Text clean and binding tight. Author's first book. Thomas Nelson Page was born April 23, 1853 at Oakland, his family's Virginia plantation in Hanover County. His parents, John Page and Elizabeth Burwell Nelson, both descendants of the old southern aristocracy, had suffered financially in the years following the Civil War. Page was a major figure in the Genteel School of Southern letters in the postbellum period. Among his works were commentaries on Southern social conditions as well as his fiction. Page's first book, a collection of short stories titled In Ole Virginia or Marse Chan and Other Stories, was published by Charles Scribner's in 1887. Set in the postbellum South while often recalling the splendors of antebellum life, these six tales included the four that had appeared previously in Century and Harper's while adding the unpublished "No Haid Pawn" and "Polly: A Christmas Recollection." Of Page's short stories, perhaps "Marse Chan" has received the most critical attention. In addition to making frequent use of dialect, it typifies those idealized qualities of old southern life Page so frequently celebrates. The story's narrative structure is framed by a northerner visiting Virginia in autumn 1872. ; 7.10 X 4.70 X 1 inches; 230 pages
