Ethelyn's Mistake.

New York: Hurst & Company, 1895. Paperback. 7.25" x 5". 311pp. Illustrated paperback. Mild general soiling and wear, but fairly nice condition given the fragility of the book. Mary Holmes was one of the very first writers to be developed by Street & Smith. She helped ensure the success of their new serial The New York Weekly in 1859. She began working for the firm before they specifically targeted a female audience and her work was intended for the general audience of the storypaper, though later it would be included often in women's romance series. This volume is typical of her work in that it is a love story, pure and simple. While Holmes was by no means a top tier author, she was one of the most popular writers of her day. Item #8225
