Book submission: Representative English Literature: From Chaucer to Tennyson

Title: Representative English Literature: From Chaucer to Tennyson
Author: Pancoast, Henry S.
Publication date: New York, 1895
Library: Sojourner Truth Library SUNY New Paltz
Call number: PR 85.P35
Submitted by: Hannah Phillips
Description:
This book belonged to Adèle Duryée, who signed her name in it. Based on the nature of the book, and given the Henry Holt and Company publishing, it is fair to assume that Duryée used the book in a scholarly manner. Some pages include notes on the text, underlines, arrows, and in at least two instances, written week dates (presumably used to track reading assignments). Her writing is in pencil. The book was rebound at some point in Buffalo, NY. It has been in the SUNY New Paltz collection for as far back as when the institution was called a “Teachers College.”
