Mountain Blood

“BY GOD! THEY WILL FIND THAT I’M NO SHEEP”

HERGESHEIMER, Joseph. Mountain Blood. New York and London: Mitchell Kennerley, 1915. Octavo, original red cloth lettered in gilt. Housed in custom slipcase and chemise. $425.

First edition of Joseph Hergesheimer’s second novel contrasting the newly rich with the old Virginians of Highland stock.

Mountain Blood is a product of the writer's earlier period of "conscientious work and artistic sincerity" (Hart, 330). "Clifton Fadiman spoke of Hergesheimer as 'the [John Singer] Sargent of the modern American novel,' thus capturing perfectly the attention to detail and colour in his prose." Bookplates.

Fine condition.
