Canby Henry Seidel, Illustrated by: Wyeth, Andrew  
The Brandywine
Publisher: Farrar & Rinehart Incorporated, 1941 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall The Rivers of America series. "Unlike many of the other rivers that have been written of in the Rivers of America series, the Brandywine is small and the events that occurred along it, though highly important, have been less impersonal than those connected with the great streams of the nation. Henry Seidel Canby, the author, known for many years as a critic and authority on American literature, was born on the BGrandywine and his family has lived on its banks for generations. He writes of the river from a great warmth of personal affection. The Brandywine is a little river of big events. New Sweden was founded at its mouth in the seventeenth century; William Penn's Quakers settled on its banks; and the greatest chemical company in the world, the Dupont Corporation, began in its narrow gorges. At the mouth of the Brandywine the first log cabins were built and the first prairie schooner was devised to haul grain to its flour mills. During the Revolution Washington fought across the fords of the Brandywine and, defeated because of his ignorance of geography, still conducted a masterly retreat. In The Brandywine are pictures of the brilliant refugee society of Wilmington at the time of the last great cycle of European wars, of the plantation life of the iron masters in the hills from which the river flows, and of the unusual Quaker society which made a culture of its own in the river valley. The Brandywine is different from many rivers famous in history because it is beautiful. Its idyllic qualities have inspired a complete literature, and Brandywine paintings would fill a gallery. Mr. Canby has made this book strictly the history of the river, the story of what the Brandywine has meant to him and to others. It is not state or military or city history, but river history in its relations to American life." Illustrated. xiii + 285 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; expected wear to edges.
