CommentsA popular historical novel by Gertrude Atherton on the life of Alexander Hamilton, a figure she adored and considered an under-appreciated American hero. The critics considered it a little too long, but it remained in print and sold over a million copies by the time of her death in 1948. This is an extraordinary copy, in fine, bright condition, in the rare original printed and decorated dust jacket.
