The Hudson by Carl Carmer, First Edition

$125

About

The Hudson by Carl Carmer. Farrar & Rinehart, New York:, 1939. First edition hardcover with dust jacket with Brodart cover. Best of the Rivers of America series. The Hudson is less a formal historical account of the discovery and development of the river but a personal, anecdotal view of it. Included are tales of white-sailed sloops and steamboats racing from Albany to New York, of old whalers and trader sea dogs of the Catskill shore, of showboats playing anti-rent melodramas to incite farmers against their landlords, of great disasters and heroic deeds, of the efforts of the Hudson River School to capture "sublimity" on canvas, of the quarrelsome, rough-and-tumble life of the Dutch along the river's banks, and much more.
