First edition of Joseph Hergesheimer’s novel of the rise and decline of the Penny family.

Three Black Pennys is considered among Hergesheimer’s best works, the tragic saga of a family, set against the early 20th-century Pennsylvania iron industry. “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.
