Book Condition: Very Good


SIGNED EDITION. This book is in Very Good condition and is lacking a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in generally clean condition. The spine ends and corners of the book covers have some light bumping and beginning edge wear. The text pages are mostly clean and bright. Both front and rear endpapers have generalized noticeable toning. This copy has been signed on the front endpaper, with an inscription, by the author. "The “Finders and Makers” series began with The Flowering of New England, 1815–1865 (1936) , followed by New England: Indian Summer, 1865–1915 (1940) , The World of Washington Irving (1944) , The Times of Melville and Whitman (1947) , and The Confident Years: 1885–1915 (1952). Criticized by some for seeking in this series a mainstream, essentially middlebrow, cultural tradition free from contradictions and conflicts, Brooks wrote The Writer in America (1953) to justify his position." ; Signed by Author
