Item #53184 The Outcry. Henry JAMES.

The Outcry.

New York, NY: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1911. [Classic Literature] First Edition, the UK and US editions being published simultaneously. Crown octavo (20 x 13cm), pp.[6]; 261; [1]. Publisher's mid-brown cloth with gilt titles to spine and upper board. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Blue ink ownership to front pastedown, dated 1911. Spine sunned, with rubbing to head and tail caps; a little shaken. Good. Lord Theign owns a painting which has for generations been known as a Moretto, but which may in fact be a Montavano. An inexpensive Moretto holds no interest whatsoever for the acquisitive Mr Bender, whereas the valuable Montavano most definitely does. In typical Jamesian fashion the vulgarities of the attribution and notoriety of the painting are kept off stage. Item #53184
