I believe this is a cover by famed cover artist Margaret Armstrong


Publisher: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York

Copyright: 1901

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 Cavalier is a lively story of love and adventure in the days of the Civil War, and details the experiences of Richard Thorndyke Smith, a young soldier in the Southern army, who gives the reader his personal reminiscences. At the age of nineteen he becomes a scout under Lieutenant Ferry; figures in many thrilling adventures and performs many valorous deeds. Ferry, whose rightful name is Edgard Ferry Durand, is a brilliant and fascinating character whose noble and fearless nature makes him loved by men and women alike. He has fallen victim to the charms of Charlotte Oliver, a beautiful and daring Confederate spy, but, owing to the fact that she is already married, he feels the hopelessness of his love. This story exhibits the author's simple and unaffected manner of writing, and the plot runs with unusual swiftness and ease.
