WILLIAM D. HOWELLS
Handwritten letter saying, "There is no uniform edition of my books, which are now in the hands of different publishers"
Autograph Letter signed: "W.D. Howells", 1 page, 4¾x6¼. Boston, 1886 May 7. To "Mr. Woodward". In full: "There is no uniform edition of my books, which are now in the hands of different publishers. Yours truly." In 1860, HOWELLS (1837-1920) published a campaign biography, Life of Lincoln, and was rewarded by being named U.S. Consul in Venice, Italy (1861-1865). As editor of the "Atlantic Monthly" (1871-1881), Howells espoused realism over romanticism in literature and promoted such writers as Mark Twain, Henry James, Bret Harte, Emily Dickinson and Stephen Crane. His own work included poetry, criticism and several novels, the best known of which was The Rise of Silas Lapham (1875). His later books examined social issues such as race relations and the condition of labor and of women. Lightly creased and soiled. Paper thinned along ½-inch strip at top verso from prior mounting. Otherwise, fine condition.
