Felix Holt/Theophrastus Such
George Eliot
$20.00

PUBLISHER: United States Book Company, New York and Chicago, 1895-1902:  Organized in 1890 by John W. Lovell as a gigantic book trust. It bought up cheap reprint libraries. In 1890 the company was incorporated in New Jersey with 3.25 million dollars. Several satellite companies were established to distribute the books. They included: Lovell, Coryell & Company; Wayside Publishing Company; Seaside Publishing Company, the National Book Company; the International Book Company; Empire Publishing Company; the Lovell Brothers & Company; Prudential Book Company; and Lovell, Gestefeld & Company. Within three years the bubble burst, bringing to an end the career of the flamboyant Lovell. The firm was succeeded by the American Publishers Corporation, which maintained a precarious existence until 1904.

Leather, with illustration and marbled endpapers.

Contains “Felix Holt:  The Radical” and “Impressions of Theophrastus Such”
