More Information
Henry James was born in New York on April 15th 1843, the son of a writer. He had a literary childhood meeting many of the great writers both in America and Europe. Being educated in Switzerland and Harvard for a career in law, Henry James abandoned his studies in order to write. Some of his work met initially with a mixed response though Portrait of a Lady and The Bostonians are still regarded as classics of 19th century literature. Collectors of first editions have their work cut out as most of the first issue print runs were sub 2,000 copies and they are, naturally, highly sought after by collectors.
