About this Item: Ticknor and Fields, Boston, 1855. Handsomely bound in finely woven red cloth with ornate ovals on the front and rear panels stamped brightly in gilt. Considerable gilt ornamentation on the spine as well. This first edition in its Gift Binding is clean and tight with all edges gilded. A handsome copy with heavy wear and rubbing to the top and bottom of the spine ends and at the corners. With occasional light foxing in the margins of a few pages, not affecting the text. This is the first issue with "Dove" for "Dived" on page 96, line 7. Laid in is a signature in ink of Henry W. Longfellow cut from a check. The Song of Hiawatha is an 1855 epic poem in trochaic tetrameter by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow that features Native American characters. The epic relates the adventures of an Ojibwe warrior named Hiawatha and the tragedy of his love for Minnehaha. Events in the story are set in the Pictured Rocks area on the south shore of Lake Superior. Longfellow's poem, though based on native oral traditions surrounding the figure of Manabozho, represents not a work of transmission but an original work of American Romantic literature. Longfellow's sources for the legends and ethnography found in his poem were theOjibwe Chief Kahge-ga-gah-bowh during his visits at Longfellow's home; Black Hawkand other Sac and Fox Indians Longfellow encountered on Boston Common; Algic Researches (1839) and additional writings by Henry Rowe Schoolcraft, an ethnographer and United States Indian agent; and Heckewelder's Narratives. In sentiment, scope, overall conception, and many particulars, Longfellow insisted, "I can give chapter and verse for these legends. Their chief value is that they are Indian legends." (Wikipedia) First Edition, first issue with "dove" on p. 96. Seller Inventory # 528
