8vo - 22.5 x 15.5 cm.; [10] - 297 pp. Blue cloth over boards with gilt lettering on spine and blind ruled borders on front board. An autobiographical 'apologetic' by Banks (1865-1938). Elizabeth, though born in the USA, spent the majority of her life in England where she worked as a journalist and author while residing at 17 Downing Street and needless to say, some one who lived at that address also moved in the society that frequented the street. She also wrote under the pseudonums of Enid and Mary Mortimer Maxwell. The book, "The Remaking of an American", is divided into three significant sections: "The Exaptriate (1912-1914)", "The Alien (1914-1918)" and lastly "The American (1926-1927)". The book was written upon her return to America though England still called to her and she returned to live out the rest of her life. The book shows mild wear to the externals with the exception of the top board edges where the cloth is rubbed through in two places. The spine is faded, otherwise solid and sound with a clean interior.
