The choir invisible by James Lane Allen( Book )

2 editions published between 1897 and 1898 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Choir Invisible by James Lane Allen, appeared in 1897, and is one of his most popular and pleasing stories. It was enlarged from an earlier story called ‘John Gray.’ Its scene is the Kentucky of a hundred years ago. The hero is John Gray, a schoolmaster and idealist, who, disappointed in his love for Amy Falconer, a pert, pretty, shallow flirt, gradually comes to care for Mrs. Falconer, her aunt, a noble woman in reduced circumstances, who with her husband has left a former stately home in Virginia and come to live in the Kentucky wilderness. She loves him in return with a deep, tender passion that has in it something of the motherly instinct of protection; but, her husband being alive, she conceals her feeling from Gray until after he has departed from Lexington and settled in another State. She then writes him to say she is free--and he replies that he is married. But he tells her in a final letter that she has remained his ideal and guiding star to noble action. The romantic atmosphere and the ideal cast of these two leading characters make the fiction very attractive; and the fresh picturesque descriptions of pioneer life in Kentucky give the tale historical value"--Bartleby.com

The correspondence of Henry James and the House of Macmillan, 1877-1914 : "all the links in the chain" by Henry James( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The House of Macmillan in London published twenty-seven titles by Henry James and three editions of his work - more than any other publisher. This comprehensive collection of correspondence between James and the firm, painstakingly edited by Rayburn S. Moore, contains 318 letters written between 1877 and 1914, most of them between James and Frederick Macmillan, son of the founding senior partner and a dominant force in the publishing house. Moore also includes correspondence between James and other members of the company, including Alexander Macmillan and George A. Macmillan. James's first book with the company was a collection of critical essays, French Poets and Novelists, published in 1878. Over the next twelve years Macmillan published fifteen of James's works, including the novels The Europeans, The Portrait of a Lady, The Bostonians, and The Tragic Muse, as well as a critical study of Hawthorne, several volumes of stories and novellas, and in 1883 the first collected edition of his fiction, in fourteen volumes. Even after his partial break with the company in 1890, James continued to appear on its list from time to time. From 1908 through 1909 Macmillan published the so-called New York Edition of James's novels and tales and in 1920 Percy Lubbock's two-volume edition of his letters. From 1921 through 1923 the company brought out a thirty-five-volume edition of James's works, the most complete collection to date. The focus of the correspondence between James and his publisher is usually on business concerns - royalty terms, dates of publication, format, type, and other technical matters. James's letters combine recurrent worry over money with fastidiousness regarding details, self-deprecating humor, and a willingness to help others. His publisher's replies reveal a combination of courtesy, generosity, social grace, and business acumen. Many of the letters, especially those to and from Frederick Macmillan, are based on friendship and concern more personal matters. They contain frequent references to James's visits to Macmillan's homes and with his American wife, Georgiana Warrin Macmillan, who was also James's good friend. These letters give details of numerous social activities and occasionally impart literary gossip about mutual friends and acquaintances. The reader of these letters, almost three hundred of which are here published in full for the first time, thus learns a great deal not only about the publishing world but also about the broader cultural milieu of the period. Rayburn Moore's full and informative annotations and excellent introduction set the correspondence in context and enhance the value of the book
