About this Item: Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, Boston, 1850. 181 x 111 mm. (7 1/8 x 4 3/8"). iv, 322 pp., 4 pp. (ads). FIRST EDITION, First Issue, with advertisements dated March 1, 1850, and with the misprint on p. 21, line 20 "reduplicate" for "repudiate." FINE MODERN DARK BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO BY BAYNTUN (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with single gilt fillet border, raised bands, spine gilt in single-ruled compartments containing an antique-style letter "A," gilt titling and turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Original blindstamped brown cloth covers bound in at rear. Front flyleaf with bookplate of Robert LeGresley. BAL 7600. Leaves a shade less than bright (as in the typical copy), occasional corner creases, isolated spots of mild foxing, otherwise A FINE COPY, the text clean and fresh, and in a pristine binding. This is a volume of firsts: the first edition, first issue of Hawthorne's first novel, his first publication for Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, and generally recognized as the first major American novel. Described by Day as "Hawthorne's masterpiece and one of the world's greatest novels," "The Scarlet Letter" probes the nature of sin, guilt, repentance, and salvation. Set in Salem in the early years of the Massachussetts Colony, the story tells of the scarlet "A" (standing for "adultery") embroidered on the dress of Hester Prynne, and the secret "A" searing the heart of her child's father, the seemingly saintly Reverend Dimmesdale. According to ANB, "Hawthorne's tightly plotted, densely symbolic, and psychologically probing story of concealed and revealed sin in seventeenth-century Boston is his most serious work of moral and cultural history. In his day as in ours, readers struggle to understand its main characters in the context of a repressive society. Arguably, Hawthorne's greatest achievement is his heroine Hester Prynne." One of the major figures in the history of literature in the United States, Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-64) was among those who first inspired the idea of "American literature," a national literature that could take its place alongside its well-established European forebears. Probably more than any other writer of stature in 19th century America, Hawthorne combined vivid imagination with careful, structured craft. The press run for this title was 2,500, so the book is not difficult to find for sale, but well-preserved copies in original cloth are quite uncommon now. Consequently, an attractively bound copy like the present one (with original covers and spine bound in) is a desirable alternative. (The book may be purchased without the bag.).

About this Item: Printed at the Riverside Press, Cambridge, 1883. 248 x 159 mm. (9 3/4 x 6 1/4"). 13 volumes. Introductory notes to each volume by George Parsons Lathrop. No. 68 OF 250 COPIES of the "Riverside Edition." Restrained but attractive early 20th century brown crushed morocco by Ernst Hertzberg & Sons (stamp-signed on rear free endpaper), covers with frame formed by pairs of plain gilt rules and a single gilt dot at each corner, raised bands, spine compartments gilt in the same design as the covers, gilt titling, turn-ins densely gilt in a palmette pattern, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, other edges rough trimmed. All 13 volumes with frontispieces and title pages with etched vignette. A Large Paper Copy on laid paper. Title pages in red and black. Clark B-10; BAL 7643. Spines faintly and evenly sunned, just a hint of wear to the tops of three spines, but A BEAUTIFUL SET, the lustrous bindings almost entirely unworn, and the text unusually clean, fresh, and bright. One of the major figures in the history of literature in the United States, Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-64) was among those who first inspired the idea of "American literature," a national literature that could take its place alongside its long-established European forebears. Probably more than any other writer of stature in 19th century America, Hawthorne combined vivid imagination with careful, structured craft. In addition to his great achievements--"The Scarlet Letter" of 1850 and "The House of Seven Gables" (1851)--our handsome edition contains all of the lesser narrative and non-fiction writings, including voluminous entries from his journals, said to contain upwards of 300,000 words. This copy has the original 12 volumes that normally make up the set, along with an additional 13th volume containing "Doctor Grimshawe's Secret," edited by Julian Hawthorne. Ernst Hertzberg, who learned to bind in his native Germany, went to work as a finisher for the Ringer bindery after immigrating to Chicago, and he eventually became a partner in the business. He also collected Napoleonic prints and documents with the goal of binding an extra-illustrated edition of William Milligan Sloane's "Life of Napoleon Bonaparte." The completed project was exhibited at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, where it won top honors for bookbinding. Hertzberg sold the set to a private collector for the then-staggering sum of $12,000, which allowed him to buy out his partner and set up his own bindery. Our edition does not often appear at auction: only five copies are listed in ABPC since 1975, and none of those is in full leather.

About this Item: Ticknor, Reed and Fields, Boston, 1850. First edition, with 4 pages publisher's advertisements inserted between preliminary blanks, dated March 1, 1850. Octavo, original brown cloth. One of only 2500 copies printed. A very good example with to the extremities, rebacked with some rubbing to the bottom of the cloth and short splits along front joint. Housed in a custom clamshell box. "The most memorable and original aspect of The Scarlet Letter lies in Hawthorne's portrait of Hester Prynne, who has been described as "the first true heroine of American fiction", a woman whose experience evokes the biblical fate of Eve. Hawthorne's achievement is to make her passion noble, her defiance heartbreaking and her frailty inspiring. She becomes the archetype of the free-thinking American woman grappling with herself and her sexuality in a cold, patriarchal society" (The Guardian). The first edition of The Scarlet Letter sold out in ten days and "made Hawthorne's fame, changed his fortune and gave to our literature its first symbolic novel a year before the appearance of Melville's Moby-Dick" (Bradley).
