1 Vanderem, Fernand (translated from the French Into English By Raffalovich, George) Two Banks of The Seine (Les Deux Rives)
New York Dutton 1919 
Good+ in the publisher's navy-blue cloth. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in gilt. vii, 412pps. No dustjacket. There are a couple of short tears in the cloth at the head of the spine along with mild rubbing to the board-edges. The gilt on the spine is dulled, though still legible; the gilt of the front board is brilliant. Also, there is a narrow split in the binding at the title-page: the binding is, nonetheless, stable with all pages intact. The text is clean and bright with no previous ownership markings. Includes a Prefatory Note by the Editor, Barnet J. Beyer.

"...belongs to the class of literature immortalized by Alphonse Daudet. In it we catch the slightly ironic but good-natured tone familiar to those who have read Sapho; and we perceive the author applying objective psychology to life -- Parisian life. For M. Vanderem is not only Gallic, but vitally Parisian. His attitude towards men and women is sophisticated; but his art is always fresh and true. He is a realist who does not disdain to make use of romance when it suits his purpose.
'Two Banks of The Seine' is an interesting story wherein the life of the Latin Quarter and that of the upper classes are brought into sharp contrast. This supplies the author with ample material suitable to his peculiar bent. He handles his material with clear vision, often with delicate sympathy, and never without humor. The men and women in the book are sketched with a sure pen, and are put and kept in motion by a firm hand. They are made to move about briskly before us and to speak with the accents of life. Like all great novelists, M. Vanderem is more interested in character and human relationships than in plot. His book is not so much a novel in the ordinary sense as a comedy of manners..." -- from the Preface by the editor.
