Kavanagh by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Beautiful hardback book by Henry W. Longfellow, titled "Kavanagh". The book is in okay condition, but is over 100 years old. No jacket. Size measures about 4.85" wide and 6.5" long.
Longfellow began writing this story in 1847 and it was published the first time in 1849. This edition is copyrighted in 1899 by Henry Altemus. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was a popular 19th Century poet, but he penned this book about a country romance. Many believe this book was a precursor of local color writing and depicts what is probably the first lesbian relationship in American fiction.
