Item Description: Cambridge: The Riverside Press, Cambridge, 1883. The Riverside Edition. Limited to 250 sets. Octavo, 12 volumes. Three-quarters blue morocco, gilt titles to the spine, top edges gilt. Illustrated with etchings by Blum, Church, Dielman, Gifford, Shirlaw, and Turner. In near fine condition. A very attractive, early Hawthorne set. The widely celebrated author has been revered not only by the public but by his literary contemporaries as well. Edgar Allen Poe said, "[t]he style of Hawthorne is purity itself. His tone is singularly effective-wild, plaintive, thoughtful, and in full accordance with his themes. We look upon him as one of the few men of indisputable genius to whom our country has as yet given birth" (McFarland, 1988). Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote later that "Nathaniel Hawthorne's reputation as a writer is a very pleasing fact, because his writing is not good for anything, and this is a tribute to the man" (Nelson, 1981). Henry James praised Hawthorne, saying, "The fine thing in Hawthorne is that he cared for the deeper psychology, and that, in his way, he tried to become familiar with it" (Porte, 1969). Lastly, the poet John Greenleaf Whittier wrote that he enjoyed the "weird and subtle beauty" in Hawthorne's tales (Woodland, 1985). Bookseller Inventory # 3581

Item Description: Boston: Ticknor, Reed and Fields, 1851., 1851. A fine and interesting association copy: on the front free endpaper is the ownership signature of artist and portrait painter "C[ephas] G[iovanni] Thompson / Janry 1851." Hawthorne became friends with Cephas Thompson in Boston in 1850, when Thompson painted Hawthorne's portrait, an engraving of which served as the frontispiece to the 1851 edition of Twice-Told Tales. The friendship grew when they crossed paths again in Italy, and Thompson's family assisted the Hawthornes with their travel arrangements. Thompson's kindness and favors are referred to many times in Hawthorne's Passages from the French and Italian Note-Books. Hawthorne was also impressed by a copy Thompson painted of Guido's portrait of the famous Italian noblewoman Beatrice Cenci, a character who figures prominently in Hawthorne's The Marble Faun, as does Thompson: during a conversation between Miriam and Hilda in Chapter VII (page 85 of the 1860 edition) about the impossibility of accurately coping Guido's Beatrice, Hilda remarks: ÒThere has been one exquisite copy, I have heard, by an artist capable of appreciating the spirit of the picture. It was Thompson, who brought it away piecemeal, being forbidden (like the rest of us) to set up his easel before it.Ó Bookplate of Carolyn Wells on the front paste-down. 12mo, original blind- and gilt-stamped red cloth gift binding, gilt lettering, a.e.g. Frontis and three plates after illustrations by Hammat Billings. Clark A12.1, probable second state; BAL 7655. Cloth a little darkened and slightly worn; small repairs to the cloth at the head and foot of the spine; very good copy, enclosed in a cloth slipcase. First edition of this collection, which brings together Grandfather's Chair, Famous Old People, Liberty Tree and Biographical Stories. Hawthorne made minor revisions for this edition.
