Wan Lee, The Pagan And Other Stories - First Series and Second Series

£17.99

Product description

Wan Lee, The Pagan and other stories is a collection of tales by Bret Harte, who was born between 1836 and 1839, and is remembered especially for his short stories. Although he was born in eastern USA, he spent many years in California, and this book includes his contemporary sketches of life in San Francisco during the 1860’s. This work has been selected from scholars as being culturally important and is part of the knowledge base of civilisation as we know it. The book is in two sections, with many observations of life in both series. This is an undated British edition published by the Grand Colosseum Warehouse Co, which was founded by Mr Walter Wilson in 1869.

Good condition. Red cloth boards with chamfered board edges and blind embossing plus gilt title on front and spine. Top edges also gilt. With an antique appearance, the book shows age with foxing on the front and rear end papers and tanning to pages. A small number of pages show spotting or small grubby marks.

First series - pp185
Second series - pp184
