Washington Square by Henry James


Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1960s-1970s. Heron Books (London)

Printed on wood-free paper. Dark blue faux-leather binding with gilt decorations.

In Washington Square (1880), Henry James reminisces about the New York he had known thirty years before as he tells the story of Catherine Sloper and her fortune-seeking suitor Morris Townsend. This perceptively drawn human drama is James' most accessible work and an enduring literary triumph.
