Publisher: Haskell House Publishers, New York
Publication Date: 1971
Book Condition: Fine
Edition: 1st Edition
Two volumes Octavo. original gray cloth lettered in silver. "It has long seemed to be that the history of the Bronte family is incomplete, and, in some senses, not well understood. . though there are in the hands of the public several able works on the Brontes, there are many circumstances relating to them that are yet in comparative obscurity. Especially has injustice been done to one member of the family -Patrick Branwell Bronte- whose life has several times been treated by those who have had some other object in view; and, through a misunderstanding of the character of the brother, the sisters, Anne in particular, have been put, in some respects, in a false light also. . I have felt it right, in these pages, to some extent also, to re-c0nsider the character of the Rev. Patrick Bronter, which has, along with that of his son, suffered unfair treatment in the biographies of his daughters. ." -from the preface. Facsimile edition of the original 1886 first edition.
