James Fenimore Cooper by Thomas R Lounsbury( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in Undetermined and English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This account of Cooper's life is one of the earliest in print. According to biographer Thomas Raynesford Lounsbury, when Cooper lay on his deathbed in 1851, he enjoined his family to permit no authorized account of his life. A wish uttered at such a time, Lounsbury argues, has the weight of a command. Thus, the sources for this biography were drawn from sketches of his career, which were found in magazines and encyclopedias

The custom of the country by Edith Wharton( Book )

2 editions published in 1956 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1913, Edith Wharton?s The Custom of the Country is a scathing novel of ambition featuring one of the most ruthless heroines in literature. Undine Spragg is as unscrupulous as she is magnetically beautiful. Her rise to the top of New York?s high society from the nouveau riche provides a provocative commentary on the upwardly mobile and the aspirations that eventually cause their ruin. One of Wharton?s most acclaimed works, The Custom of the Country is a stunning indictment of materialism and misplaced values that is as powerful today for its astute observations about greed and power as when it was written nearly a century ago
