Notice of Pierre in the Baltimore Sun

Image Credit: Christie's
“Pierre, or the Ambiguities; by Herman Melville.” A fascinating, original and brilliant production of the same mind which has within a few short years won an equally original and brilliant reputation in an entirely new and untrodden field. “Pierre” works in hearts, and loves, and philosophy: but forgets not diligently to supply his pages with the pungency of his satire.  --Baltimore Sun, Wednesday, August 4, 1852; found online in the historical Newspaper Archives at Genealogy Bank.
