Bound in genuine maroon leather, the edition features gold gilt design front and gold title/author lettering on a hubbed (raised) spine. It was bound using Smyth sewn binding and concealed muslin joints. Inside is graced with gold moire fabric endpapers front and back along with a gold satin attached ribbon bookmark. All three page edges are tipped in gold gilt. Super octavo book size or 7" x 11" with 516 pages. This edition is finely illustrated by Colleen Browning with an intro by R.W.Stallman.

As with many novels of its time, The Portrait of a Lady by Henry James was originally serialized in the Atlantic Monthly and MacMillan's Magazine in 1880. It was then published in novel form in 1881.
It is an endearing story of a young woman finding her future overwhelming. After inheriting a large amount of money, she finds herself the victim of scheming American ex-pats. Set in Europe it is one of James' best works.
