This book contains Edith Wharton's first novella and the second book she ever wrote, The Touchstone. This narrative follows Stephen Glennard, a young man whose destitution leads him into a dubious money-making scheme which he embarks on so that he can afford to marry the woman he loves. After seeing an advertisement seeking any papers or correspondences related to a recently deceased author that he had been in communication with, he snaps up the opportunity. A tale of how social strata, money, and self-deprecation can impact love, The Touchstone is well worth a read and is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Wharton's prolific work. We have chosen to republish this antique text due to its immense literary value, and are proud to republish it here complete with a new prefatory biography of the author. Edith Wharton was a Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist, short story writer, and designer.
