About This Item

Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., , 1947. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Near Fine/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. ROBERTS, Kenneth. Lydia Bailey. Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company,1947. First Edition. Illustrated with maps on front and rear paste downs, ffep and rfep. 8vo, black cloth cover with gold and red lettering to spine and front cover. "These are 'the heroic years' when Albion Hamlin comes from Maine to Boston to defend a client who has run afoul of the notorious Alien and Sedition Acts. Before he knows quite what has happened to him Albion has lost a case, delivered a ringing oration on liberty in the teeth of illiberal Justice Chase of the Supreme Court, and been jailed for his pains. And he has fallen in love - with the Gilbert Stuart portrait of his client's lovely niece, Lydia Bailey, reported dead of yellow fever in Haiti. Albion's escape from prison with the help of old Samuel Adams is but the beginning of the adventures which carry him to Haiti in search of Lydia, and to France and Tripoli, where, with Lydia, he participates in events which, though both shameful and triumphant, taught the world that the United States was a world power at last." An attractive, clean and unmarked copy!
