This striking design for Cable’s adventurous tale of the Civil War fought by descendants of Louisiana and Mississippi is at once characteristic of Armstrong’s style in its use of a balanced, rectilinear central plane but unusual in the overall restraint where the decoration is confined to the title plane. Illustrations by Howard Chandler Christy.

Margaret Neilson Armstrong (American, New York 1867–1944 New York)
