Présentation de l'éditeur
Toward the end of the year 1920 the Government of the United States had practically completed the programme, adopted during the last months of President Winthrop's administration. The country was apparently tranquil. Everybody knows how the Tariff and Labour questions were settled. The war with Germany, incident on that country's seizure of the Samoan Islands, had left no visible scars upon the republic, and the temporary occupation of Norfolk by the invading army had been forgotten in the joy over repeated naval victories, and the subsequent ridiculous plight of General Von Gartenlaube's forces in the State of New Jersey. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.
Biographie de l'auteur
Robert W. Chambers (May 26, 1865 – December 16, 1933) was a Brooklyn-born artist and direct descendant of Roger Williams, the founder of Providence, Rhode Island. First educated at the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute in the visual arts, then at the Art Students’ League, Chambers was at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris in the 1880s, before moving back to New York and embarking on a new literary career in 1887. Although one of his first books, The King in Yellow remained one of his most popular throughout his prolific career, which spanned not only Weird Lit but romances, war stories, and historical fiction, eventually becoming one of the more commercially successful writers of his generation. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .
