A Kentucky Cardinal and Aftermath

ALLEN, James Lane / THOMSON, Hugh

A Kentucky Cardinal and Aftermath - ,

Macmillan & Co. Ltd., 1909.

First edition illustrated by Thomson. Small 8vo. Green cloth with elaborate gilt decoration and lettering on the spine and upper cover. All edges gilt. Illustrated in line by Hugh Thomson. A very good copy indeed, spine a little darkened and previous ownership inscription on the front free endpaper.

An idyl of provincial life, a kind of Kentucky Paul and Virginia, a romance in which the traditional hero and heroine ... move with some of the stateliness and grace of a minuet through a courtship whose tempo and details were considerably slower
and daintier than those of a generation or two later ... its style, characterized by lightness, slyness of jest, and restraint of emotion. [Knight - James Lane Allen and the Genteel Tradition]. The pastoral subject and style is perfectly illustrated by Thomson's delicacy of line.
