About this Item: Boston. William White and H. P. Lewis. 1842., 1842. Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 68 pp. 12mo. Self wraps. First Edition. A delightful parody of Dickens first visit to America and especially the final dinner sponsored by his Boston friends. Dickens had come to America full of enthusiasm and general admiration for America, but his early experiences were a crushing disappointment. He gently (he thought) raised the issues of America's failure to participate in International Copyright protection, American slavery, chewing tobacco and the need for some prison reform. Journalists took these up and excoriated Dickens repeatedly as he sped through America as far west as Cairo, Illinois, and St. Louis. He was unable to find the time to meet all who wished an audience with him, causing rresentments on both sides. Theseevents and issues are discussed by him in his "American Notes for the General Circulation." At the elegant banquet before his departure (40 courses served at a cost of $15.00), he tried to make amends, but held his ground on his criticism. There was bad taste left with both him and his audience. Here, Quoz is a satire on Dickens' nickname of "Boz." Samuel Kettell (180055) became an amanuensis and hack writer for Samuel Goodrich (Peter Parley). A guileless haunter of libraries, he showed great humor, a facility for languages ( 14 in all) and an incapacity for making money. He edited an overly comprehensive compendium of American poetry from Cotton Mather to J. G. Whittier. Goodrich lost money on the deal, known as his "Kettle of Poetry." Kettell traveled to Europe with Emerson as companion on the sea voyage. He wrote, in addition to anthologies, many satirical and humorous articles under several pseudonyms. This production by Kettell is a very rare item. Only 5 copies are known to American Imprints. Spine paper taped long ago. Few inkspots on front cover. Minor foxing. Soiling of cover. Mild wear at front corners. Two mm.from top of front cover clipped. Else, Very Good. Podeschi H277. Wright I, 1571. AmImprints 42-2783. DAB (for Kettell). Seller Inventory # 9709

About this Item: S. G. Goodrich and Co., Boston, 1829. 12mo, three volumes: pp. [i-iii] iv-ix [x-xi] xi-xv [xvi] xvii-xlviii [1] 2-353 [354: blank]; [i-iii] iv-x [1] 2-408; [i-iii] iv-x [1] 2-406, nineteenth-century three-quarter black pebbled morocco and marbled boards, spines and sides tooled in gold, t.e.g., other edges untrimmed. First edition. The first comprehensive anthology of American poetry. It includes poems by 189 American poets, beginning with Cotton Mather and ending with John Greenleaf Whittier. At the end of the third volume is a 28-page "Catalogue of American Poetry" which lists in chronological order "all the poetical works of American origin which have come under notice in the course of this undertaking." "The work was projected by [Samuel Griswold] Goodrich and originally undertaken by a Boston journalist, Frederic S. Hill, and was conceived as a refutation of Sydney Smith and other calumniators of American genius. To make the refutation sufficiently crushing, Kettell went into highways and hedges in search of eligible bards with the result that his collection throws a brilliant light on the state of literary culture in the period covered. The reviewers [e.g. S. A. Eliot, NORTH AMERICAN REVIEW, October 1829] fell foul of its indiscriminate inclusiveness and several editorial shortcomings; Goodrich, in consequence, lost $1,5000 on the venture and felt that insult was added to injury when he discovered that SPECIMENS were commonly referred to as 'Goodrich's Kettle of Poetry.'" - DAB. Harris Collection, p. 137. Sabin 37655. A fine copy. (#137385). Seller Inventory # 137385

About this Item: S.G. Goodrich and Co, Boston, 1829. First edition of this landmark collection of early American poetry, conceived as a patriotic project to counter "the insinuation thrown out some years ago by our neighbors across the ocean, that there was no such thing as an American book worthy of being read." Casting a wide net, editor Kettell collected the work of over two hundred early American poets in support of his claim that "we are now becoming a literary people." Highlights include an excerpt from the Bay Psalm Book, Philip Freneau's "The Dying Indian," William Cullen Bryant's "Thanatopsis," and the lyrics of "The Star-Spangled Banner." Seventeen of the poets included are women. Volume III concludes with a catalogue of books consulted by the editor, a valuable addition for the historian, representing the earliest bibliographic mention of Edgar Allan Poe's first book, Tamerlane. A near-fine copy of an American literary monument, "the fullest anthology of American literature published to that time" (Oxford Handbook of Early American Literature). Three twelvemo volumes, early twentieth-century brown pigskin over textured tan cloth boards, raised bands, spines tooled in gilt, marbled endpapers, text blocks uncut and partially unopened. Catalogue of American Poetry at rear of volume III. Bookplate of collector Perry Beaver Strassburger (1888-1954) to front free endpaper of volume I. Light foxing throughout, occasional light scuff to bindings, closed tear to preliminary blank of Volume I. Laid into Volume I is a handwritten note from Strassburger's widow, presenting "the Early American Poetry books which belonged to your Uncle Perry," along with his spectacles, to her nephew Peter.
