THOSE OF HIS OWN HOUSEHOLD (Madame Corentine.)
Edition: First US printing.
New York: The Devin-Adair Company, 1914. Hardcover first edition - Translated from the French by L.M. Leggatt. First US printing of this novel of provincial life, set on Jersey island and the Lannion coast, originally published in 1893 (and which was filmed as a movie in 1914 in France under the original title of Madame Corentine). A good example of a decorative binding from the early 20th century - bound in blue cloth with white lettering, black horizontal lines, and a band of white flowers along the fore-edge of the front cover. 290 pp.
Condition: Some rubbing to the lettering on the spine, previous owner's name, but otherwise very tight and overall very good. Uncommon, and especially so in this condition.
