About this Item

This is the complete set of 20 volumes bound in the original heavy but finely-woven green linen cloth with paper labels at the tops of the spines. There are numerous condition problems with this set: cracked hinges, heavy chipping and tearing at the tops of many of the spine ends; several paper labels are missing while others are heavily chipped. However, the interiors of the books are very good indeed. The volumes with the exceptions of the several with cracked hinges are clean and tight. With all the charming and action-packed illustrations present, many of them signed by prominent artists of the times: Frederic Remington, James M. Flagg, E. Boyd Smith, Frank Merrill, Eric Pape, Arthur Keller, Thomas Fogarty, and Seymour Stone. Volume I is inscribed "Bret Hart September 1896" on the "Author's Autograph Copy Page." A good, solid set of Harte's works in the original cloth which could use some restoration to the paper labels and the spine separations. Perhaps a suitable set for rebinding in moroccan leather. Francis Bret Harte (August 25, 1836 May 6, 1902) was an American author and poet, best remembered for his accounts of pioneering life in California.His first literary efforts, including poetry and prose, appeared in The Californian, an early literary journal edited by Charles Henry Webb. In 1868 he became editor of The Overland Monthly, another new literary magazine, but this one more in tune with the pioneering spirit of excitement in California. His story, "The Luck of Roaring Camp", appeared in the magazine's second issue, propelling Harte to nationwide fame. Autograph edition signed by Bret Harte #223/350 copies.
