Item Description: G. P. Putnam's Sons 1895-1900., New York, 1895. Octavo, 33 volumes. Bound in original 3/4 green morocco over marbled linen boards with silk ribbon markers. Top edge gilt and gilt titles and tooling to the spine. Hand-colored steel engraved frontispieces and additional engravings on Japon vellum. This edition consists of only 63 sets, of which this is number 49. A hand-written manuscript page from chapter 9 of Oak Openings is bound into one volume. The volumes are in fine condition. An exemplary set. Although now renown for the baseball Hall of Fame, Cooperstown, New York was the place where Cooper spent most of his life and it was established by and named for his father, United States Congressman, William Cooper. It was his life here, surrounded by Iroquois territory as well as his time in the US Navy that influenced a good deal of his work. Cooper did not begin his literary career until the age of 30, when his wife, also a writer, challenged his claim with a wager that he could produce a better novel than the one she had been reading. Although his first book, Precaution, published anonymously, was not a huge success, he, of course, went on to be one of the most popular 19th-century American authors, and his work was admired greatly throughout the world. Many consider him to be the first true American novelist. Bookseller Inventory # 2653

Item Description: Cooperstown 1 page, quarto n.d (after 1848), 1848. James Fenimore CooperÕs own personally handwritten working draft for his contract with publisher George P. Putnam to publish an original work of fiction which eventually was published as The Ways of the Hour, CooperÕs last novel. This is a full page in CooperÕs hand and it refers to Putnam by name as publisher and bears the full name of J. Fenimore Cooper twice and the last name Cooper four times. A long and interesting contract that surprisingly reads much like a modern publishing agreement with Cooper intimately involved in the publishing process. Cooper agrees to produce Òa new work of fictionÓ and that he will provide Putnam with the finished printing Òstereotype platesÓ for a novel Òcustomary size, in two volumes duodecimo.Ó The contract goes on in great detail about royalties, PutnamÕs rights as publisher, fees, and penalties, and that at the end of two years that PutnamÕs license to publish the novel will end, and that the printing plates will be returned to Cooper. When the New York publishing firm of Wiley & Putnam dissolved in 1847, George P. Putnam (1814-1872) established his own house and built up a literary backlist that forms the foundation of mid-nineteenth-century American letters. Putnam brought out a uniform edition of Washington Irving and soon thereafter began to publish CooperÕs internationally famous novels in a standard edition, beginning with The Spy and The Pilot in April and October 1849 (BAL 3932-33); twelve novels (including The Last of the Mohicans) were ultimately re-issued between 1849 and 1851. Noted Cooper scholar, Warren S. Walker, notes that this ambitious final novel that Cooper Òevidences his concern about Ôthe ways of the hourÕ: lack of principle as shown in flagrant abuse of justice by elected judges, incompetent jurors, culpable.lawyers, and an irresponsible press; an unreasoning worship of mass opinion; and failure to pursue the truth beneath the trappings of appearance. The vehicle for exploring the sociological theme is a mid-1840s murder trial assuming the pattern of a murder mystery, a Ôwhodunit,Õ complete with aliases, cloak-and-dagger schemes, a ÔrevivedÕ corpse, a missing treasure, a series of Ôjailbreaks,Õ bribery, and a madwoman.Ó Cooper was the first American novelist to receive international acclaim and AmericaÕs first best-selling author. American publishing agreements from the first half of the 19th century and especially from a major figure like Cooper (and drafted by himself) are of the greatest rarity.

Item Description: 1764. First Edition. Signed. (COOPER, James Fenimore) (NEW YORK).Journal of the Votes and Proceedings of the General Assembly of the Colony of New-York. Began the 9th Day of April, 1691; and Ended the 27th of September, 1743. WITH: Journal of the Votes and Proceedings of the General Assembly of the Colony of New-York. Began the 8th Day of November, 1743; and Ended the 23rd of December, 1765.New York: Hugh Gaine, 1764, 1766.Two volumes.First edition of this "cornerstone of New York and American colonial history," an exceptional association copy inscribed by James Fenimore Cooper and dated by him: "May 1845," additionally inscribed by his brothers, son and grandson. This first edition of the Journals represents the first collected publication of the New York Assembly’s landmark petitions against the Sugar Act, claiming the right "to secure that great Badge of English Liberty, of being taxed only with our own Consent."This outstanding association copy of the pre-Revolutionary Journals of the New York General Assembly was in the Cooper family for decades before being received by James Fenimore Cooper in 1845. Featuring a remarkable series of familial inscriptions in both volumes, these Journals were given to Cooper by his brother, then passed along to the author’s son and grandson. A writer who "consistently stressed the significance of American politics and culture" and reflected this passion in both his fiction and many histories, Cooper "secured his place as the first true American novelist" with his third novel The Pioneers (1823), which featured the character Major Hartman, modeled after Hendrick Frey, the family friend who first presented these Journals to Cooper’s brother Richard in 1812 (Introduction, American Democrat).In addition to this extraordinary provenance, the Journals represent the first printing of the "most important legal collection of its time, and a cornerstone of New York and American colonial history" (Jenkins). Covering the proceedings of the first permanent Assembly of the New York colony from its initial meeting on April 9, 1691 through December 23, 1765, the Journals were invaluable to Cooper’s work, for he systematically consulted "authentic publick records, private documents, more especially those in possession of the Cooper family" (Chronicles of Coopertown, 3). Significantly this pre-Revolutionary chronicle also provides a detailed "constitutional history of New York" (Marke 80), especially the Assembly’s role in leading the movement toward independence. Of special note are accounts of the Assembly’s heated dispute with the Crown on the judiciary, its resistance to the Currency and Sugar Acts, and its bold assertion of September 11, 1764, in which the Assembly asserted its right "to secure that great Badge of English Liberty, of being taxed only with our own Consent and also in pointing out to the Ministry, the many Mischiefs arising from the Act, commonly called, the Sugar Act" (II:749-50, italics in text). That frank objection emerged again in petitions introduced over the coming months—such as that of October 18, in which the Assembly claimed the right to "an Exemption from the Burthen of all Taxes not granted by themselves," and in one voice warned of "tragical Consequences" should Parliament continue in "divesting us of the Right to tax ourselves" (II:776-7). As such, the Journals’ petitions for the "right not to be taxed for revenue by Parliament are among the great state papers of the pre-Revolutionary period" (Knollenberg, 189).Benedict 368. Evans 9756, 10418. Jenkins 175 (Volume I). Sabin 53719. OCLC lists 44 copies.Light foxing and dampstaining. Expert restoration to contemporary sheep and labels. Bookseller Inventory # 67131

Item Description: 1826. [in the original boards] A Narrative of 1757. By the Author of "The Spy," "The Pilot," "The Pioneers," &c. &c. In Three Volumes. London: John Miller, 1826. Original drab paper-covered boards with (early but not original) brown paper spines and printed labels. First English Edition, published in three volumes just two months after the two-volume Philadelphia edition. This is the novel for which Cooper is best known today: THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS was the second-published of the five "Leather-Stocking Tales," (the series name derived from the nickname of the hero, Natty Bumppo, so-called because of his long deerskin leggings). The first of the five to be published had been THE PIONEERS, in 1823; however, their sequence in terms of plot is THE DEERSLAYER, THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS, THE PATHFINDER, THE PIONEERS and THE PRAIRIE. The hero, known by the name "Hawk-eye" in this novel, "is shown as a young man approaching the zenith of his skill as a wilderness hunter and scout during the French and Indian Wars. In this best known novel of the saga, Natty as Hawk-eye develops into the epic hero of American literature." [UVa]~These volumes, remarkably, are still uncut in their original paper-covered boards (which were meant to be temporary); at some point (apparently long ago) the spines and labels were aptly restored, as is typically necessary for such fragile bindings. Otherwise the volumes show only minor edge-wear. The first and third volumes are lacking the front free endpaper; the half-title is present only in the second and third volumes, because none was originally provided for the first volume. The leaves still have their original uncut edges, and are unusually free of foxing for paper approaching its 200th year. At the top of each front cover and on the front paste-down of Vol. I is the signature of [Baron] Charles de Nagell (Peerage # 335169), probably the initial owner. See Blanck 3833 (saying that the American edition came out in January and the English in March, noting their sources); UVa (Barrett) 6 (this English edition is noted but is not listed in detail, though the American and French editions are; UVa says that the English edition came out six months after the American edition, but without noting reasons for that statement); Spiller & Blackburn p. 44.

Red morocco spine labels. An excellent copy. Housed in a custom-made half green morocco, fleece lined clamshell case."This is the. most famous of the Leatherstocking Tales, and the first in which the scout Natty Bumppo was made the symbol of all that was wise, heroic and romantic in the lives and characters of the white men who made the American wilderness their home. This novel glorified for many generations of readers, in England, France, Russia, and at home, some aspects of American life that were unique to our cultural history" (Grolier 100 Influential American Books, 34)."The writing of The Last of the Mohicans occupied Cooper during most of 1825. He was then living in New York City and enjoying the success inaugurated by The Spy (1821), reinforced by the reception of The Pioneers and The Pilot (1824). Because his publisher (Charles Wiley) was ill and on the verge of bankruptcy, Cooper made overtures to the Philadelphia firm of Carey & Lea, and in January 1826, following Wiley's death, agreed to their proposal to issue a first edition of 5,000 copies and to pay him $5,000."The first English edition of 1250 copies, set from advance sheets forwarded to London as came off the press in Philadelphia, was published by John Miller on March 18" [1826] (Blake Nevins, editor.

Item Description: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Scribner’s Classic Edition. This copy owned by Peter Logan Bockius, Jr. Bockius was the great-grandson of George Bockius, the grandfather of Carolyn Brennerman Bockius Wyeth, the wife of N.C. Wyeth. Records show a number of Bockius families in the Brandywine area: in fact; Carolyn Brennerman Bockius was one of ten children, and Peter's grandfather and namesake, Peter Bockius, was one of seven children. The Bockius' were known as a free-spirited clan, and there must have been a large and close-knit family interacting with Wyeth. The books are variously inscribed to "Pete" or "Peter L. Bockius, jr" (see individual descriptions below) and either simply signed "N.C. Wyeth" or "from Uncle Convers". Since Peter was not Wyeth's nephew, but rather his wife's second cousin, Wyeth must have felt a particular affection for the boy. Wyeth inscriptions are scarce, and familial presentations are rare. 1925. First Scribner’s Classic edition. Large 8vo black cloth lettered in gilt with a color pictorial cover label. Illustrated with a color title page vignette and 9 full-page color plates by Wyeth. With a presentation inscription on the half-title, "Peter L. Bockius Jr / Dec. 25, 1925 / from mother and father". Also on the half-title is an INSCRIPTION BY WYETH, "Autographed for Peter in 1932 / N.C. Wyeth". Small holes in the rear outer gutter and light rubbing at the spine tips, else a very good copy in a very good first issue dust jacket which has chipping at the upper spine tip, very light chipping at the lower spine tip and overall light sunning. Inscribed By Illustrator. Bookseller Inventory # 3581
