A secondhand book that has been read but is in good condition. Some damage to the cover, including scuff marks and some creasing, but no holes or tears. All pages are undamaged with no creasing or tearing, but very minimal yellowing at the edges. No pencil underlining of text, no highlighting of text, no writing in margins. No missing pages.
"Transplanted to Europe from her native America, Isabel Archer has candour, beauty, intelligence, an independent spirit and a marked enthusiasm for life. An unexpected inheritance apparently gives her freedom, but despite all her natural advantages she makes one disastrous error of judgement and the result is genuinely tragic. Her tale, told with James' inimitable poise, is of the widest relevance.
`The phase when his (Henry James') genius functioned with the freest and fullest vitality is represented by The Portrait of a Lady'."
