About the Book

A Landscape Painter by Henry James was published by Scott and Seltzer in 1919 in the US. The volume includes four stories written before Henry James reached his twenty-fifth year of age. James himself regarded stories as among our literature's most priceless works. The tales are reprinted, not from the English edition, but from the American periodicals, in which they were published in. The stories of James Howells are in every sense deserving of James at his finest and should be preserved. "A Most Extraordinary Case," the book's concluding piece, debuted in the Atlantic Monthly in April 1868. It dealt with a man's conscience who was deeply in love with a woman who was also in love with his competition. A wealthy young man who plays at being a poor artist-a landscape painter-and seeks sanctuary in a little beach community where he stays with an elderly sea captain and his daughter, the novel is a highly detailed tale told through his diary. This rare antique book is an exact replica of the original. Locksley, who was devastated by his broken engagement, relocates to a rural area of New England to pursue his artistic career.
