Philadelphia: Lea and Blanchard, 1948.
First American edition, first printing. Bound in publisher's original pale green paper covered boards, rebacked with a new spine preserving the original title label. Very Good. Boards edge-worn and soiled. Previous owner name to front blank and foxing throughout. The first work in print by the Bronte sisters--Charlotte, Emily and Anne--purposely published under masculine pseudonyms to avoid contemporary prejudices against female authors. Item #140938092
