Very Good in None jacket. Hardcover. 350 pages, brown cloth covers. From the account of James's childhood in a family to whose portrait Mr. Edel contributes many significant and Piquant details, we go on to his youth, the highlights of which were the famous accident-which has given rise to a good deal of uninformed speculation-and James's non-combatant status in the Civil War. Then the story proceeds to the events and relationships of James's early maturity, his life in Cambridge in the late 1860's, his frequent travels, the growing attraction of Europe; his first flights as a writer and the establishment of his early reputation; his friendships; and the tragic story of his cousin Minny Temple, who came as close as anyone to being his first love, who symbolized so much for him, and whose spirit was to animate more than one of his heroines. Previous owner's signature on front fly leaf otherwise very good.
