Description

An updated edition of this definitive history of Harper—a fascinating look into the history of American letters from the unique perspective of one of the country's most distinguished and enduring publishers—now with a new introduction that brings the book up to the present day. From Moby Dick to Huckleberry Finn—but not Alice in Wonderland, which was rejected—The House of Harper is a sweeping trip through American letters, offering anecdotes and stories about authors from Charles Dickens, Herman Melville, and Mark Twain to Thomas Wolfe, Aldous Huxley, and Edna St. Vincent Millay.
