About this Item

This is the first edition of THE COURTSHIP OF MILES STANDISH AND OTHER POEMS by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, published in 1858 by Ticknor and Fields, Boston, MA. The ads in the back of the book are dated October 1858 validating this as a first edition. The copy we are offering for sale today is in very good condition. THE COURTSHIP OF MILES STANDISH AND OTHER POEMS contains not only the title poem but also contains Birds of Passage, another famous poem by Longfellow. It has been reported that THE COURTSHIP OF MILES STANDISH sold 10,000 copies in one day in Britain. In 1884, Longfellow became the first non-British writer for whom a commemorative sculpted bust was placed in Poet's Corner of Westminster Abbey in London; he remains the only American poet represented with a bust. The original brown cloth blind-stamped boards on this book are in good condition with the worst wear at the extremities of the spine. The front and back panels are blind-stamped with a pretty decorative design and are still in very good shape. The spine and hinge are holding nicely. The pages within are also in good condition, with hardly any issues. There is a small tear on page 114 and the front pastedown and first free endpaper have the white remains of something that was, at one time, pasted on the first free endpaper and then removed. The name 'Mary Osgood' appears on the very top of the flyleaf in blue pen. Otherwise the pages are free of writing or other marks and have retained their crispness. This copy would make a great addition to any Longfellow fanís collection. Bookseller Inventory # 1073
