Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0847826090, Hardcover)

In collaboration with Edith Wharton Restoration, Rizzoli is proud to participate in a rare literary event-the publication of a recently discovered manuscript by Edith Wharton, one of America's greatest writers.
It was the winter of 1888. Edith Wharton was 26 and had been married three years. She confided in a Newport friend and cousin-in-law, James Van Alen, that there was nothing she wanted more than to make a cruise in the Mediterranean. Van Alen arranged for the charter of a yacht called the Vanadis, and Edith and her husband set off on the trip of a lifetime.
During the cruise Wharton elegantly recorded her reactions to each place along the route. Afterwards, she put the manuscript aside and began to work on her first novel. The manuscript lay untouched and undiscovered for the next one hundred years.
Annotated with timeless photographs and commentary by award-winning photographer Jonas Dovydenas, who faithfully retraced Wharton's route, and with a new introduction by renowned novelist Louis Auchincloss, this will be a gift edition for Wharton fans to cherish.
