820. HEARN (LAFCADIO). AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT, SIGNED, of "The Scenes of Cable's Romances.'

Inlaid to small folio, and bound in full brown levant morocco, title on back and sides in gold, gilt edges, by Rivière.

AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPTS OF LAFCADIO HEARN ARE EXTREMELY RARE. The present one is particularly desirable, associating as it does, that other interesting writer of New Orleans life, George W. Cable.

It is interesting to note the remarkable cleanness of this manuscript, there being scarcely a correction in the whole paper, which is quite in contrast with the manuscripts of some of the English novelists, thus showing the ease and facility with which Hearn wrote.

The photographic illustrations have been laid down on the manuscript by Hearn himself, thereby increasing the personal association of the piece, a finishing touch, as it were, to this FIRST MANUSCRIPT OF ITS AUTHOR.
