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: Ticknor and Fields, Boston, 1850. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Fair. No Jacket. First Edition. One of 2,500 copies published of this true first edition, on 16 March 1850, according to C.E. Frazier Clark Jr.'s definitive "Nathaniel Hawthorne - A Descriptive Bibliography". Number A16.1 in Clark's bibliography and number 7600 in BAL. This copy is in the following states and sub-states, again as described by Clark: Binding: in the style of Ticknor format A. Brown bold-ribbed T cloth with blind-stamped floral device inside ruled panels on both covers. Spine gold-stamped. Cream-colored wove endpapers. The contents are listed on pp. iii-iv and there is no preface. This is a key indicator of the first edition versus the second edition, which includes a preface. The other variants between the first and second editions are also present. These consist of sixty-nine typographical and spelling errors and punctuation changes throughout the text. For example, on page 21 line 20 "reduplicate" appears instead of "repudiate." Two of these variants (pg 31 line 20 and pg 132 line 29) are not as listed but these appear to be errors in Clark's list. Page 321 is in State x1 - line 10 has presence of work-up. Page iii is in State a2 - the "N" is beneath the "r" in "according" and the "1" of "192" is out of position. Four pages of ads were inserted between the front endpapers in most copies. This copy does not have any ads. It is unclear if they were lost or if this is one of the copies that never had ads. The text block is complete, although the stitching has loosened. The leaves are clean and unmarked except for a previous owner's name, dated 1850, on the front pastedown. The boards are in good condition, with some wear at the corners. The spine is in tatters, however, with some pieces missing. It is held to the boards with transparent tape. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 006515

Item Description: London George Routledge & Co. 1851, 1851. First Combined Edition and the Second English printing overall of each title, issued together for Routlege's Standard Novels series. With an illustration by John Gilbert featuring Hester Prynne with Pearl standing before the stocks. 8vo, publisher's very handsome, original dark green cloth lettered and decorated in gilt on the spine and blind-stamped in an elaborate overall design on the covers. This is the binding variant for Routledge's Standard Novels. 252, [2], 1-248, 4 ads. A lovely and very fresh copy of this rare issuance, the text extremely clean and fresh, only the frontispiece with some spotting as might be typical with the paper used, the cloth very clean and bright and sturdy and with only the most trivial signs of age. A really superior copy of this rare book. VERY SCARCE, the pirated editions of each work produced by George Routledge to compete with Bohn's editions. The sheets of both printings were distributed in various formats, this being the combined issue for the Standard Novels series. THE SCARLET LETTER here was printed only one year after the true first edition printed by Ticknor and Fields in America and THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES is printed in the same year as the first. Together, these two novels present Hawthorne at his best and offer his two most famous and important books. His story of Hester Prynne is considered by most to be his magnum opus. A literary masterpiece and surely one of the most important works in the oeuvre of colonial America, it, more than any other work of literature set the stage for an understanding of the puritan mind and beginnings of the American system. Both Bohn’s and Routlege’s 1851 editions were piracies, a circumstance not uncommon in transatlantic literature at the time, and the two companies competition for sales of this title is a testament to Hawthorne’s popularity. There were only a handful of American authors who were given much credence or esteem by English publishers of the time. But Hawthorne was unquestionably one of the few, and this was perhaps his most popular book. THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES is a pillar of nineteenth-century American literature, a staple of Gothic literature, and a major influence on later authors of both the horror and mystery genres.
