The book: Rare and Attractive Limited First illustrated edition by Albert Herter on Japanese paper and beautifully bound by Bayntun. "The Grandissimes" is a novel by George Washington Cable, first published in 1880. It is set in New Orleans in the early 19th century and explores the social and racial tensions of the time. The story revolves around the Grandissime family, a wealthy Creole family, and their relationships with other prominent families in the city. The novel explores themes of love, betrayal, social class, and race relations and features a diverse cast of characters from different backgrounds and social classes. The novel is considered an important work of American literature for its exploration of complex social issues and its portrayal of the multicultural society of New Orleans.

The author: George Washington Cable (October 12, 1844 – January 31, 1925) was an American novelist notable for the realism of his portrayals of Creole life in his native New Orleans, Louisiana. He has been called "the most important Southern artist working in the late 19th century", as well as "the first modern Southern writer." In his treatment of racism, mixed-race families, and miscegenation, his fiction has been thought to anticipate that of William Faulkner.

The illustrator: Albert Herter (March 2, 1871 – February 15, 1950) was an American painter, illustrator, muralist, and interior designer. He was born in New York City, studied at the Art Students League with James Carroll Beckwith, and then in Paris with Jean-Paul Laurens and Fernand Cormon.
