The Other House.

"Oh blest Other House, which gives me thus at every step a precedent, a divine little light to walk by": First Edition of Henry James' The Other House

The Other House.

JAMES, Henry.

$550.00

Item Number: 80007

New York: The Macmillan Company, 1896.

First American edition of this terse and startling novel, written just before The Spoils of Poynton and What Maisie Knew, is the story of a struggle for possession—and of its devastating consequences.. Octavo, original cloth. In very good condition.

Set in England, this book is something of an oddity in the James canon for its plot revolving around a murder. The novel was originally planned as a play called The Promise. James sketched a scenario for the play in 1893, but it didn't interest theater managers.
