Of works that shaped 20th century literature, there is none more influential than The Portrait of a Lady. It is one novel that bridges literary realism and literary modernism and one of Henry James’ best works. The Portrait of a Lady is a character study of the protagonist Isabel Archer. It was initially published in 1881 to critical acclaim. Like many of James’ works, he continually revised after publication, but unlike many of his revisions, those made to The Portrait of a Lady are generally considered improvements. It is a crucial volume for any collector of American literature.

This is a fine copy bound in full red leather with gilt stamping. Raised bands. Gilt edges. All fine. Silk endpapers and bookmark sewn in. Text block fine.
