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.

Item Description: Ticknor, Reed & Fields, 1851. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Hawthorne, Nathaniel. THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES. Boston: Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, 1851. First edition in original publisher's brown blind-stamped cloth, mostly, if not entirely, first issue (see below). A NEAR FINE copy, only lightly worn with a few spots to the cloth, but almost completely unchipped at both ends of the spine which is very rarely the case. This example is bright and sharp, and has never been repaired or restored. The official bibliographical description for this book is convoluted and, to some, controversial so here is more detail: this copy has the earliest adverts at the front of the volume (Clark's primary state "A") dated 1851. Perfect type at page 50, line 25 & page 278, line 25. No battered or misaligned type (as is often called for) at page 149, lines 1-3, but no compelling evidence for it having been re-set. The binding is BAL 7604's variant "B" (no precedence). This copy's original owner has drawn a small and well-executed portrait on the recto of the final blank, dated April 18th, 1851 and captioned with the Latin phrase: "Qui facit per alium, facit per se" which speaks directly to the curse of THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES whereby the sins of a family lineage get passed down through each generation (metaphorically reflected in the decaying of the seven-gabled mansion itself). THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES contains some of Hawthorne's greatest writing and remains, after 160 years, just as much a classic. A fresh collector's copy with only the most minor of trivial faults.

Item Description: David Bogue, 1851. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. This is the first UK edition of Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic novel, The Scarlet Letter (320 pages), published by David Bogue, Fleet Street, in 1851. This is in an elegant, rust linen clambox, in perfect condition. The book cover (5.25" x 6.875"), dust rose with gilt lettering, has stains to the front, a sunned spine, on which the gilt is slightly faded but clearly legible, bumped outside corners, and other minor edge wear. There are no notable tears. The spine is straight and securely attached. The inside is very good overall. The only extraneous elements are two stamps. The first is a small bookstore stamp (Skeffington and Southwell, Piccadilly) to the upper outside corner of the inside front cover. The second is a bindery stamp (Remnant and Edmonds, London) to the lower inside corner of the back inside cover (see photos). There are no other stamps or attachments, no writing or notations. The binding is secure throughout, with no loose or missing pages. There are no page tears. There are a number of corner creases, but these aren't sharply delineated. There are few stains, none of which are significant. I believe the most prominent stain is to the blank page adjacent to the final printed page (see photo above). All the lettering is clean and unfaded. The accompanying photos are accurate reflections of the book's conditions. International shipping would be by priority express insured, with a shipping charge of $100. US shipping would also be by priority express insured, with a shipping charge of $30.
