Illustrated by Childe Hassam (12 tissue guarded color plates and 10 colored headings). Green cloth stamped in gilt, top page edges gilt, moire like pastedowns and endpapers. The green cloth has occasional light soiling, very light rubbing at the spine ends, and the spine gilt is a bit faded. The gilt on the front and rear panels are still quite bright. The interior has an 1894 ink ownership signature on the second enpaper and something has been removed from the rear endpaper facing the penultimate leaf. A few glue spots are visable and three have small paper remnants still attached. There is a 1/2" abrasion near the center of the page (with the tear showing on the verso) and the bottom corner is creased. The remainder of the interior is in excellent condition with the leaves showing just light toning. If not for the rear endpaper, this copy would grade near fine. Signed.

Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1895. First edition, second printing (pp. 126) with pictures and decorations by Childe Hassam. Tall octavo (23 cm) in white publisher’s cloth (scarce), gilt title and decoration by Thaxter’s friend Sara Wyman Whitman (1842- 1904) whose cover designs, an elegant interpretation of the Art Nouveau, enhanced the work of, among others, Oliver Wendell Holmes and Sarah Orne Jewett. The tissue- guarded plates, illustrations and decorations are by the American impressionist Childe Hassam (1859- 1935) whose style seems perfectly suited to the flowered summer retreat on Appledore Island in the Gulf of Maine where Thaxter hosted a famous salon for writers and artists. Here, the frontispiece, title page, various headpieces, and eleven full-page garden portraits exhibit Hassam’s skill depicting light and colour. Celia Thaxter (1835- 1894) was a popular poet of the time (They would have said ‘poetess’). Her work, notable for its intimate familiarity with wild nature combined with conventional subjects and rhyming schemes, appeared frequently in The Atlantic. Her poem ‘The Burgomaster Gull’ is probably the best known. In Hassam’s treatment it’s as though Thaxter herself somehow has become an element in the landscape. This book, an account of her splendid flower garden on Appledore, is rightly regarded as “one of the most elaborate pieces of bookmaking of the period” (BAL). Spine and the cover’s front edge sunned, front hinge re-enforced; the binding becoming a bit dry. A bright, attractive copy. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1480280379696

Overall, a very good copy of this scarce item. Celia Laighton Thaxter (1835–1894) was an American writer of poetry and stories. She was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.Thaxter grew up in the Isles of Shoals, first on White Island, where her father, Thomas Laighton, was a lighthouse keeper, and then on Smuttynose and Appledore Islands.When she was sixteen, she married Levi Thaxter and moved to the mainland, residing first in Watertown, Massachusetts at a property his father owned. In 1854, they accepted an offer to use a house in Newburyport. The couple then acquired their own home, today called the Celia Thaxter House, built in 1856 near the Charles River at Newtonville. She had a son, Roland, born August 28, 1858, who would later become a prominent plant pathologist. Her first published poem, Landlocked, was written during this time on the mainland. Her life with Levi was not harmonious and she missed her islands, and so after 10 years away, she moved back to Appledore Island.Celia became the hostess of her father's hotel, the Appledore House, and welcomed many New England literary and artistic notables to the island and to her parlor, including writers Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, John Whittier, Sarah Orne Jewett, and the artists William Morris Hunt and Childe Hassam, who painted several pictures of her. She was present at the time of the infamous murders on Smuttynose Island, about which she wrote the essay, "A Memorable Murder." In 2008, The Library of America selected "A Memorable Murder" for inclusion in its two-century retrospective of American True Crime. First Edition with matching dates of 1886 on the title and copyright pages. Bookseller Inventory # 233
