Deserted Wife Facsimile Dust Jacket

THE DESERTED WIFE

by Mrs. E. D. E. N. Southworth

Original Custom
Facsimile Dust Jacket
NOT PREVIOUSLY ISSUED
Custom Sized to Fit Any Edition

This dust jacket is a Lady Bluestocking custom creation and not a facsimile of any dust jacket previously issued. The lovely front panel illustration is taken from an original 19th century print bearing the engraved inscription “The Deserted Wife” and a penciled notation of 1850. The Saturday Eveninig Post ran Mrs. Southworth's story from August 11 to December 1 of 1849. The person I bought the print from suggested this was one of the illustrations used in that publication, but I have not been able to confirm that conclusively. The grief and depth of character conveyed seem what Mrs. Southworth would approve.
