New York: Scribner, . First Edition Decorated cloth. BAL 2331. Cable's second book and many think his most important. Arlin Turner in GEORGE W. CABLE, THE LIFE AND TIMES OF A SOUTHERN HERETIC calls this book the "first 'modern' Southern novel" and "the first important work of fiction written by a Southerner" that attempts "to deal honestly with the complexity of Southern racial experience." Certainly not light praise. This copy is INSCRIBED by Cable: "They all [sic] this book my best. No one/says which is my worst." SIGNED and dated by the author in Northampton, Mass. 1918. Minor fraying to spine tips. Very Good copy with fine inscription (Item ID: 007684)
