Hudson River Bracketed by Edith Wharton 


Presumably a second edition.   Beautiful antiquarian hardcover with green cloth boards.   

Book is in very good condition.  Some soiling to cloth / a few spot stains on spine.

Interior is clean, binding is tight and pages look and read beautifully.

One of Edith Wharton's unjustly neglected novels, Hudson River Bracketed features two strong protagonists - Vance Weston and Halo Spear. The former is an undereducated young man who arrives in New York with a keen desire to write. Halo Spear is a brilliant, accomplished young woman who introduces Vance to literature and they form a deep bond, which flourishes and endures despite the hardships of Vance's life, the disappointments of Halo's - and their respective marriages.
