Book Description: H.C. Carey & I. Lea, Philadelphia, 1826. Book Condition: Very Good. First edition. 2 vols. Collation: Vol. I: [i-xii], [1]-282, [blank]; Vol. II: [i-iv], [1]-289, [blank]; collates complete. First issue (BAL 3833 state A) with both copyright pages reading "a Book," misprints on pages 89 and 243 and pgs. vii and 71 both printed correctly in Vol. I. Bound in blue boards (possibly original or contemporary), rebacked, and generally foxed, but uncut. Signature 18 in Vol. II supplied from another first edition copy. One of the first major American novels and an undisputed classic, the novel uses the French and Indian Wars between 1756 and 1763 as a backdrop for the action. Interestingly, Cooper creates contrasting portraits of the Native Americans, personified in the characters of Chingachgook, wise and stoic, and Magua, deceitful and merciless. The basis for several adaptations, most noteworthy is the 1992 Michael Mann film starring Daniel Day Lewis and Madeleine Stowe. More than any other work "Mohicans" is the basis for Cooper';s legacy in literature. Additional images available upon request. Very Good. Bookseller Inventory # 455

This novel glorified for many generations of readers, in England, France, Russia, and at home, some aspects of American life that were unique to our cultural history" (Grolier 100 Influential American Books, 34)."The writing of The Last of the Mohicans occupied Cooper during most of 1825. He was then living in New York City and enjoying the success inaugurated by The Spy (1821), reinforced by the reception of The Pioneers and The Pilot (1824). Because his publisher (Charles Wiley) was ill and on the verge of bankruptcy, Cooper made overtures to the Philadelphia firm of Carey & Lea, and in January 1826, following Wiley's death, agreed to their proposal to issue a first edition of 5,000 copies and to pay him $5,000."The first English edition of 1250 copies, set from advance sheets forwarded to London as came off the press in Philadelphia, was published by John Miller on March 18" [1826] (Blake Nevins, editor.

"The second and most famous of the [five] Leatherstocking Tales, and the first in which the scout Natty Bumpo was made the symbol of all that was wise, heroic and romantic." Grolier American 100, 34) "Set in 1757, during the French and Indian wars, The Last of the Mohicans established Natty Bumppo (called "Hawkeye" in this novel) as one of the immortal figures of American literature and indeed of the American imagination. Like the magnificent landscape of forests and waterfalls in which he moves, Natty is here restored to the full vigor of an earlier period of life. With his role as frontier scout and his hunting outfit which combines white and native elements, he appears to inhabit a liminal space between the culture of his origin and the world of his friends, the native warriors Chingachgook and his son Uncas, the last Mohican of the title."
