Item Description: [probably New York, 1903. Hardcover. Almost Certainly Done by Miss Currie, and theMost Visually Impressive Cosway-Style Binding We've Ever Offered for Sale. 318 x 238 mm (12 1/2 x 9 3/8"). 1 p.l. (title), [89] unnumbered leaves, printed on one side only. Probably ONE OF 26 COPIES, all PRINTED ON VELLUM. NOTHING SHORT OF SPECTACULAR OLIVE BROWN COSWAY-STYLE MOROCCO BY RIVIERE & SON (stamp-signed on front turn-in) ADORNED WITH A TOTAL OF 14 VERY FINE OVAL MINIATURES PAINTED ON IVORY UNDER GLASS, ALMOST CERTAINLY BY MISS C. B. CURRIE, covers bordered by three plain and decorative gilt rules, upper cover with very large central gilt lozenge formed by flowers, volutes, acanthus leaves, and many small tools, the lozenge containing AT CENTER AN OVAL PORTRAIT MINIATURE OF LONGFELLOW (approximately 72 mm. tall), this SURROUNDED BY SIX OVAL MINIATURES OF SCENES FROM THE POEM (each approximately 58 mm. tall), and AN ADDITIONAL FOUR MINIATURES of the same size set in as cornerpieces, surrounded by gilt flourishes and small tools; lower cover with large triangular gilt centerpiece set with THREE ADDITIONAL MINIATURES, two of them views, the other a larger portrait of Evangeline in her nun's habit; raised bands, spines lavishly gilt in compartments filled with volutes, acanthus leaves, and small tools framing a central flower, gilt turn-ins, vellum endpapers, edges untrimmed. In a suede-lined maroon morocco fitted pull-off case. RICHLY ILLUMINATED THROUGHOUT BY JOHN H. TEARLE, with beautiful foliated initials in colors and burnished gold, most of them having leafy extensions, elaborate head- and tailpieces, and with a manuscript title page featuring a three-quarter border of acanthus leaves, flowers, and berries as well as WITH AN OVAL MINIATURE (approximately 70 mm. across) of a woodland scene (a second similar scene of a country churchyard appearing later in the text decoration). Front pastedown with armorial bookplates of Albert Henry Wiggin and Lynde Selden (see below). A typed key laid in at the front citing the lines of the poem that are depicted in the miniatures. The Magnificent Library of Phoebe A. D. Boyle, #179. Slight (inevitable) humpbacked bowing to boards, paint a bit flaked on title page (and with very minor flaking elsewhere), naturally occurring variations in the grain of the vellum, otherwise A MAGNIFICENT COPY, the colors rich, the gold luminous, and THE BINDING IN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE CONDITION. This is the most elaborate and visually impressive Cosway-style binding we have ever seen, and it was both produced and owned by persons of distinction. The size of the volume allows for a remarkable number of miniatures, a fact that sets it apart from all but a handful of Cosway bindings, which are almost always considerably smaller. Just one of the 14 oval miniatures is the customary portrait of the author traditionally used in Cosway bindings, while all the other miniatures here depict scenes from Longfellow's Acadian epic, including: the young Evangeline tending her cows, three paintings showing the houses and cottages of the Acadians, two scenes of the beautiful wilderness of Canada, a dramatic scene of the village being burned, a priest leading the inhabitants of an Indian village in prayer, a happy family gathered around their grandfather, a dramatic confrontation with Redcoats, a city street with a night watchman, the cemetery where our heroine was laid to rest, and a full-length portrait of Evangeline in the habit of a Sister of Mercy. The paintings are very finely done, and the level of their aesthetic achievement strongly suggests that they are the work of Miss C. B. Currie. The distinctive style of the brush strokes clearly matches that seen in her other work. The ultimate authority on this subject, Stephen Ratcliffe, who knows the binding well, has testified in person that it is without a doubt Currie's work. The earliest Cosway bindings were executed by Currie, who is known to have worked for Sotheran for 30 years until her death in 1940. Most of her ea. Bookseller Inventory # CJI1301

Item Description: Cambridge, MA: John Owen, 1839, 1839. First Edition. Inscribed by the author "Mrs. Charles Amory, from the author, with his regards and best wishes, December 25, 1839." The first edition of the author's first book of poems, printed in an edition of only 900 copies. BAL 12065. Longfellow met Amory (1808-1898) in 1829, when both were students at Gottingen. They renewed the acquaintance in 1836 when both found themselves at Harvard, where Longfellow had been appointed as a professor and Amory was studying medicine. In his journal for 1838, the poet referred to his friend as "my usual resource" for dinner. With three other companions, including the future senator Charles Sumner, the two formed a small circle known as "The Five of Clubs." In 1841, Longfellow would allude to Amory and two other friends with the same surname in his poem "To the River Charles": "thy name reminds me / Of three friends, all true and tried, / And that name, like magic binds me / Closer, closer to thy side." His wife, Martha Babcock Greene Amory (1812-1880) was the granddaughter of John Singleton Copley, and his first biographer. She married Amory in 1832, and chronicled their wedding journey - a grand tour of Europe -- in detailed letters published by D. B. Updike in two volumes in 1922. Small pencil inscription to second blank: "Morris Carter from S.G.D." S.G.D. is Susan Greene Dexter (1840-1903), the Amory's daughter. Carter (1877-1965), who wrote a biography of Isabella Stewart Gardner, was the first director of the Museum she founded, serving from 1924 until his retirement in 1955. An exceptional association copy with an impeccable provenance linking a number of the first families of Boston. Beautifully bound in full maroon leather decorated in gold.

Item Description: [1865, 1866], 1865. 221pp. Oblong 12" x 10". Bound in black half morocco and black cloth with gilt-lettered label on front board [rubbed, corners worn, hinges weak], spine shorn with gatherings beginning to loosen. Music manuscript, handwritten in ink with some pencil. Endpapers stained, light scattered foxing. Very Good. This two-act opera is based on Longfellow's 'The Courtship of Miles Standish'. The vocal score is for four solo characters: Miles Standish [bass], John Alden [tenor], Priscilla [soprano], Messenger [bass], plus male and mixed chorus. The handwriting is presumably that of the composer, Bush. A pencil sketch [page 11] of a song later found in its entirety in the score [page 44], makes it unlikely that this was written by a copyist. A few other pencil notations and corrections appear, with some measures crossed out in ink and rewritten or recomposed. Bush was an obscure but skilled composer: while the text setting evidences some clumsiness, especially in recitative, the work shows the influence of early Verdi in ensemble setting; Schubert's treatment of Gretchen from Goethe's Faust; a little Berlioz, in choral treatment; even some Wagner, notably the character of Senta in The Flying Dutchman. The passages selected from the Longfellow poem suggest an emphasis on the female character Priscilla, and a sensitivity to the condition and plight of women in general. Page 109 contains the date 'January 9, 66', written at the end of one of Priscilla's extended sections. Both the overture and the second act remain unfinished. The conclusion of the overture seems to be sketched in pencil. The bound manuscript ends with a few empty staves but the volume is essentially filled. The work is in essence complete and could be performed with minimal additional composition. Bush was also a noted illustrator and political cartoonist. He joined the Mendelssohn Society [at the time, an extremely capable New York-based singing group with members from the Metropolitan Opera] in 1866. The opera, scored for only four soloists and with copious choral involvement, seems an ideal vehicle for an organization like the Mendelssohn Society. Bookseller Inventory # 23332

Item Description: New York: Samuel Colman, 1839, 1839. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Two volumes. 19th-century half brown morocco and marbled boards, nicely rebacked in matching morocco. Light wear and foxing. Very good. FIRST EDITION. Presentation copy inscribed by Longfellow: "Henry R. Cleveland with the affectionate regards of the author" and with Cleveland's signature and bookplate. Soon after he joined the Harvard faculty in 1836, Longfellow, Henry Cleveland, C. C. Felton, Charles Sumner, George Hillard formed an informal intellectual society they later called the "Five of Clubs." No other presentation copy of Hyperion appears in the auction records of the past thirty years. Although Longfellow was later generous with presentation copies for his increasingly wide circle of friends and admirers, in his early years he reserved presentation copies for his family and closest friends. As a result they are rare in the market. Inscribed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # ABE-8047509276

Item Description: James R. Osgood, 1858. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Signed by Author Boston, 1858 [1872 for Books]. A four page autograph bifolum manuscript letter from Longfellow to critic William Winter. Longfellow thanks Winter for a poem, and says that upon a future visit "we will read the poems in the music of the mind, and illustrate them with lamp-light and fire light." The poem in reference - from The Queen's Domain, 1859 - is reproduced in manuscript twice, presumably by Winter's hand in one instance. Also included i an envelope in Longfellow's hand addressed to Winter. These items are tipped into the first pages of Christus. All three volumes are present in very good minus condition with some fading to spine and some weakening to hinges. One of 512 of the first edition, consistent with BAL 12160, with erratum "set sail" for "sail set" on p. 171 of the second volume. Winter was a recent graduate of Harvard Law at the time the letter was written, and was clearly enamored with Longfellow's work. A very nice association. Bookseller Inventory # SP248

Item Description: Boston: Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, 1849. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author in the year of publication on the front free endpaper: "John Skelton (?) Esq / with the regards /of the author / October 1849". Decoratively bound in ribbed brown cloth, with ornamentations stamped in blind to the covers, six bands stamped in blind and gilt lettering to spine. An excellent copy, with very minor spotting to the endpapers, else clean and bright. Overall, a near fine copy. Kavanagh is a semi-autobiographical novel and a formative piece of "local-color" literature. In many ways, it is Longfellow's answer to the question of whether or not American literature should be exclusively American in subject, audience, and style. In an unusually overt political commentary, he argues that universality is greater than nationality and that making a piece of literature exclusively national is to limit literature's potential. He writes, "As the blood of all nations is mingling with our own, so will their thoughts and feelings finally mingle in our literature. We shall draw from the Germans tenderness; from the Spaniards, passion; from the French, vivacity, to mingle more and more with our English solid sense." Ironically, this same text helped establish local-color literature, which focuses on the lives of everyday people in a given location. Inscribed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # HWL012

Item Description: 8vo. Tan paper boards, printed label on spine. New York: Published by Samuel Colman . . . 1839. First Edition. First Issue. BAL 12064. 2 volumes. Samuel Longfellow's copy, with his signature in each volume. An extremely important association copy. Samuel Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth's younger brother, was graduated from Harvard College in 1839. From 1839 to 1840 he taught school in Elkridge, Maryland. Thus it is possible that the present copy was sent directly to him by the publisher without taking the time for his brother to inscribe it to him. Upon returning to Harvard in 1842, he became involved with the Transcendentalist Movement, and such people as Convers Francis, Theodore Parker, T. W. Higginson, etc., becoming in many ways one of the most important figures of the group. The Dictionary of American Biography writes of him, 'Of the group ill named Transcendentalists he was the clearest and most methodic in thought and will be remembered for his discriminating argument and for the devout fervor and beauty of his hymns.' Samuel Longfellow was also a poet and author, writing a two-volume biography of his brother which was published in 1886. The following year he published a sequel entitled, Final Memorials of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The brothers remained close throughout their lives. The present family copy of one of Longfellow's most important books is of considerable historical importance. It is beautifully preserved, with the heel of one spine worn, o/w Fine. Enclosed in 1/2-leather slipcase. Bookseller Inventory # 000727

A very sharp set. Longfellow's success spanned both sides of the Atlantic: "He wrote some of the most popular poems in American literature, in which he created a new body of romantic American legends," and when he died, "he was the first American whose bust was placed in the Poet's Corner in Westminster Abbey" (Columbia University Press). This 14 volume edition includes two volumes of Longfellow's prose, his translation of Dante in three and his verse in six, including such celebrated works as Tales of a Wayside Inn, The Song of Hiawatha, Christus and The Courtship of Miles Standish.

Item Description: George Routledge and Sons, London, 1873. Hardcover. First British Edition. According to BAL 12164, "Apparently published simultaneously in Boston and London." Small octavo (4" x 6-1/2") bound in publisher's gilt-ruled and lettered green cloth with black stamping. State 1. A Presentation Copy from Longfellow INSCRIBED in the poet's distinct hand on the verso of the front endpaper: "Mrs. Theodore Parker/with kind regards/of the Author/June 11, 1874." Mrs. Theodore Parker (Lydia Cabot) was the wife of Theodore Parker (1810-1860) who was a leading abolitionist, American Transcendentalist, and, along with William Ellery Channing, the most important and influential Unitarian minister of the nineteenth century. Parker's sermons inspired speeches by Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr. Parker wrote in 1850: "A democracy -- that is a government of all the people, by all the people, for all the people." And it was Parker in 1853 who said, "I do not pretend to understand the moral universe; the arc is a long one. . . . But from what I see I am sure it bends toward justice." Owner name of E. M. Vincent on the half-title page. Some bubbling to the cloth, light rubbing and wear to the spine tips. Very Good and a fine Association Copy. Bookseller Inventory # 017695
