DEVOTA. Augusta Evans Wilson.


Stuart Travis. New York: G. W. Dillingham, (1907). First edition. Four, full-page color illustrations by Stuart Travis. The author is best known for her wildly popular domestic romances, which were often parodied for their purple prose, their unrealistically upright heroines, and their formulaic narrative structures. They were adored by their many readers though. Top edge of cover just a bit faded, otherwise this is a fine copy in red cloth with gold lettering and borders around title and illustration in oval on front cover. Top edge gilt. In an early dust jacket which has some chips but nor affecting any lettering. EARLY DUST JACKET.
