The Country of the Pointed Firs. Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin & Company, 1896. With clipped author's signature affixed to the flyleaf. A most pleasing example of what many consider to be Jewett's finest work.A collection of short stories that blends into the novel, all of which comment in some way on the decline of life in late 19th-century Maine Fishing villages. An important work from a highly influential writer whose contribution to American letters is oft-considered under appreciated. Very good, lightly rubbed along the extremities. Overall a tight and attractive copy. The item "The Country of the Pointed Firs Sarah Orne Jewett 1896 Signed First Edition VG" is in sale since Wednesday, January 29, 2014.
