Item Description: Printed at the Riverside Press, Cambridge, 1883. 248 x 159 mm. (9 3/4 x 6 1/4"). 13 volumes. Introductory notes to each volume by George Parsons Lathrop. No. 68 OF 250 COPIES of the "Riverside Edition." Restrained but attractive early 20th century brown crushed morocco by Ernst Hertzberg & Sons (stamp-signed on rear free endpaper), covers with frame formed by pairs of plain gilt rules and a single gilt dot at each corner, raised bands, spine compartments gilt in the same design as the covers, gilt titling, turn-ins densely gilt in a palmette pattern, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, other edges rough trimmed. All 13 volumes with frontispieces and title pages with etched vignette. A Large Paper Copy on laid paper. Title pages in red and black. Clark B-10; BAL 7643. Spines faintly and evenly sunned, just a hint of wear to the tops of three spines, but A BEAUTIFUL SET, the lustrous bindings almost entirely unworn, and the text unusually clean, fresh, and bright. One of the major figures in the history of literature in the United States, Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-64) was among those who first inspired the idea of "American literature," a national literature that could take its place alongside its long-established European forebears. Probably more than any other writer of stature in 19th century America, Hawthorne combined vivid imagination with careful, structured craft. In addition to his great achievements--"The Scarlet Letter" of 1850 and "The House of Seven Gables" (1851)--our handsome edition contains all of the lesser narrative and non-fiction writings, including voluminous entries from his journals, said to contain upwards of 300,000 words. This copy has the original 12 volumes that normally make up the set, along with an additional 13th volume containing "Doctor Grimshawe's Secret," edited by Julian Hawthorne. Ernst Hertzberg, who learned to bind in his native Germany, went to work as a finisher for the Ringer bindery after immigrating to Chicago, and he eventually became a partner in the business. He also collected Napoleonic prints and documents with the goal of binding an extra-illustrated edition of William Milligan Sloane's "Life of Napoleon Bonaparte." The completed project was exhibited at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, where it won top honors for bookbinding. Hertzberg sold the set to a private collector for the then-staggering sum of $12,000, which allowed him to buy out his partner and set up his own bindery. Our edition does not often appear at auction: only five copies are listed in ABPC since 1975, and none of those is in full leather.

Item Description: Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, Boston, 1850. Embossed Cloth. Book Condition: Good binding. First Edition. Octavo. 322pp. Scarce in publisher's binding, this is an a discreetly resewn copy with some wear to the spine ends and corners; light soiling to the covers; a few signatures are pulled and loose, but holding; 4-page March 1, 1850 publishers catalog bound in at the front endpaper; this is one of 2500 copies of the first edition of among the most important American novels [Note: "Much has been made for the revisions and correction done for the second edition (see next entry); the claim being that these changes occured during the run of the first edition and that, therefore, there are two states of the first edition. The assertion is incorrect. All examined copies of the first edition are textually identical." [BAL 7600]. This copy belonged to Albert Laighton, a poet (and sometime New Hampshire state senator) who lived in Portsmouth, NH. Laighton's signature is present, and we presume the copious notes pencilled on the preliminary pages are in his hand as well. Previous owner names and notes to the preliminary pages and we have not removed scattered marginal bracketing in pencil. All in all, this is an more than presentable First Edition copy. Housed in a custom cloth clamshell box. (BAL 7600, Clark A16.1). Good binding. Bookseller Inventory # 256286

Item Description: Ticknor, Reed and Fields, Boston, 1850. First edition, with 4 pages publisher's advertisements inserted between preliminary blanks, dated March 1, 1850. Octavo, original brown cloth. One of only 2500 copies printed. A very good example with to the extremities, rebacked with some rubbing to the bottom of the cloth and short splits along front joint. "The most memorable and original aspect of The Scarlet Letter lies in Hawthorne's portrait of Hester Prynne, who has been described as "the first true heroine of American fiction", a woman whose experience evokes the biblical fate of Eve. Hawthorne's achievement is to make her passion noble, her defiance heartbreaking and her frailty inspiring. She becomes the archetype of the free-thinking American woman grappling with herself and her sexuality in a cold, patriarchal society" (The Guardian). The first edition of The Scarlet Letter sold out in ten days and "made Hawthorne's fame, changed his fortune and gave to our literature its first symbolic novel a year before the appearance of Melville's Moby-Dick" (Bradley).

Item Description: Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, Boston, 1853. Octavo, pp. [1-4] 5 [6] 7-336 [note: first leaf is a blank] + 8-page publisher's catalogue dated "July, 1853" inserted at front, flyleaves at front and rear, engraved title and six inserted plates, original decorated blue cloth, front and rear panels stamped in blind, spine panel stamped in gold, yellow endpapers. First U.S. edition. 3000 copies printed. A sequel to A WONDER BOOK (1851), retelling Greek myths, including "The Minotaur," "The Pygmies," "The Dragon's Teeth," "Circe's Palace," "The Pomegranate Seeds," and "The Golden Fleece." "There is something a little surprising at first glance about Hawthorne, the grim examiner of New England souls, spinning stories for children, but he was, by all accounts, a devoted husband and father, and this book, as well as its predecessor, testify to the softening influence that domestic life apparently had on him. The other ostensible surprise is that Hawthorne, one of the first major American writers to mine his native soil for literary material, should turn back to classical sources here, but he uses them as raw materials only, bringing his own personal and national sensibility to bear on them, freely changing settings, characters, events and -- most importantly -- tone. This technique, as Attebery points out (The Fantasy Tradition in American Literature, p. 62), 'creates a fairyland which is neither Greece nor America, but linked to both: a meeting place of the modern and the magical.' Hawthorne broke with the didactic fashion of children's literature, using motifs and methods of the fairy tale, then a controversial genre. He 'led the way for a great many American children's writers in the nineteenth century. Largely from his innovations, a tradition grew up of fairy tales that were not absolutely original or genuinely American, but not entirely derivative either' (ibid., p. 63). One might add that openly linking oneself to older sources is itself a deeply embedded aspect of the fairy tale in both its oral and written forms." - Robert Eldridge. Attebery, The Fantasy Tradition in American Literature, pp. 60-3. Peter Parley to Penrod, p. 10. BAL 7614 (noted printing 1; catalogue A). Clark A22.2a. An early copy with owner's penciled signature dated September 1853 on the first blank. Just a bit of wear to cloth at spine ends, a bright, clean, better than very good copy. (#137474).

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.
