Item details

Vintage from the 1950s

1957 collection of novels by Louis Bromfield, book club edition. Novels in the book are Early Autumn, The Green Bay Tree and A Good Woman. Book is in excellent condition, with no tears, stains or folds, although the original, illustrated jacket cover has some minimal tearing at the back edge, and the name Margaret Pitts written in ink on the inside cover. From the inside jacket cover:

"What distinguished Louis Bromfield above all else was his huge appetite for life. This quality is reflected in all his writing, and in these three novels we find many evidences of his unforgettable personality - the character and outlook of a man who never lost his deep American roots in the course of his travels and his long sojourns in foreign lands.

The Green Bay Tree, first published in 1924, is the story of Lily Shane's revolt against her stuffy, pseudo-aristocratic way of life, and her escape to the bohemian society of Paris in the 1920s.

Early Autumn, a Pulitzer Prize winner in 1926, is a dramatic novel of Olivia Pentland's choice between love and the Pentland tradition.

A Good Woman, original brought out in 1927, is the moving portrait of Emma Downes, a "good" woman - and her ruinous domination of her son.

By general consent these early novels are among Louis Bromfield's finest fiction. They are brought together here in one big volume for the delight of older readers (whose original copies have disappeared) and for the edification and entertainment of a new generation."


639 pages. Measures 8.5 inches x 6 inches x 1.75 inches. Published by Harper and Brothers.
