Item Description: 1826. [COOPER, James Fenimore]. The Last of the Mohicans: A Narrative of 1767. By the Author of "The Pioneers." Philadelphia: H. C. Carey & I. Lea, 1826. Two volumes. xi,[1],282; [2],[blank],289,[1]pp. plus terminal blank. Original drab paper boards, with expert restorations to the spines and spine labels, top edges rough trimmed, fore and bottom edges wholly untrimmed. Moderate foxing throughout, title of second volume tanned, early ink signature in top margin of each title, otherwise a very good, untrimmed set, with the blanks, including the blank conjugate to the title in the second volume present. Enclosed in cloth wrappers with gilt labels, and a folding clamshell box (broken at one joint). The box bears the bookplate and booklabel of collector / actor / translator Jean Hersholt, and the later bookplate of Carol and William Simon. First edition of one of the landmarks of early American literature. In this set, as with all copies, in volume one, page 89 is mispaged 93 and chapter XVI is miscaptioned XIV. The folio is present on page 71 (no sequence), and the final 'i' on p. vii is not present (sequence not determined, but it is likely that the final 'i' may have dropped out in the course of the print run). In volume II, the copyright notice is in BAL's state A (sequence undetermined and likely the result of multiple setting rather than correction), and as noted above, the blank conjugate following the title is intact -- it was frequently removed from copies being bound. "The most famous of the Leatherstocking Tales, and the first in which the scout Natty Bumpo 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 . The 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 American Hundred.

Both volumes chemised together in a full red morocco slipcase."The second and most popular novel in the series The Leather-Stocking Tales by James Fenimore Cooper, first published in two volumes in 1826. In terms of narrative order, it also is the second novel in the series, taking place in 1757, during the French and Indian War. Its principal character is Natty Bumppo, also called Hawkeye, now in middle life and at the height of his powers. The story tells of brutal battles with the Iroquois and their French allies, cruel captures, narrow escapes, and revenge. The beauty of the unspoiled wilderness and sorrow at its disappearance, symbolized in Hawkeye’s Mohican Indian friends, the last of their tribe, are important themes of the Novel" (Merriam-Webster’s Encyclopedia of Literature).The Last of the Mohicans was the second and most famous of Cooper’s "Leatherstocking Tales," although it was the first tale to be published. The other novels in the series (in order of composition) are The Pioneers (1823), The Prairie (1827), The Pathfinder (1840), and The Deerslayer (1841). The sequence in relation to plot is The Deerslayer, The Last of the Mohicans, The Pathfinder, The Pioneers, and The Prairie.BAL 3833. Grolier, 100 American, 34. Shoemaker 24217.

Item Description: London John Miller 1826, 1826. 3 volumes. First English edition, published to coincide with the release of the American first edition in March 1826. The English edition consisted of 1250 copies, set from advance sheets forwarded to London as they came off the press in Philadelphia. This truly iconic American book was published by Miller on March 18. (see Nevins, Leatherstocking Tales, Notes on the Texts, Library of America edition, p. 1334) With the half-title in Volume II. 8vo, in very handsome contemporary three-quarter tan calf over marbled boards, compartments of the spines scolloped in blind between raised triple gilt fillet decorated bands, each volume with contrasting red and green morocco labels lettered and ruled in gilt, additional gilt tooling at the spine tips. xi, 287; 276; 295 pp. An excellent set, unusually fine and extremely well preserved, solid and very clean, the very handsome contemporary bindings sturdy and proper. A RARE FIRST EDITION IN FINE CONDITION, OF A TRUE CORNERSTONE OF AMERICAN LITERATURE. James Fenimore Cooper was an avid reader in an age when most literature in America was imported from England. But as an author, he decided early on that he could well do a better job of writing for a growing and distinctly American readership than could his European counterparts. And so, he began the writing of his "Leather Stocking" series of which LAST OF THE MOHICANS is the second book after the introduction of Natty Bumppo in THE DEERSLAYER but the most famous of all the titles in the group and the "first in which the scout.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 the many generations of readers, in England, France, Russia and at home, some aspects of American life that were unique to our cultural history." Cooper did far more than to imitate the European authors he had read, instead developing a great new American style by which quite quickly he became one of the first and greatest literary giants of the New World. His works reflect themes and emotions unique to a people living on the edge of the great American wilderness and Cooper would prove to be widely read, not only in America, but throughout all of Europe as well. ‘His achievement.the result of brilliant improvisation.was sustained.to the close of a hectic, crowded career. His.fame attests his power of invention.the creation of tension between different kinds of society, between society and the individual, between the settlement and the wilderness, and between civil law and natural rights as these suggest issues of moral and mythic import.’ Cooper's works remain to this day classics in American literature and LAST OF THE MOHICANS 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).

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.

Item Description: 1826. [COOPER, JAMES FENIMORE]. The Last of the Mohicans; a Narrative of 1757. London: John Miller, 1826. 3 vols. xi, [1], 287 p.; 276 p.; [2], 295 p. Half titles lacking. Near-contemporary half calf, gilt. Name clipped from top margin of title page of vol. 1, stain on 3:192-3 from laid-in paper, binding lightly rubbed at extremities, but a very good copy. First English edition of the most famous of Cooper's Leatherstocking Tales, and one of the great classics of early American literature. It was the first of Cooper's novels 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 American frontiersmen. While Cooper's "noble savages," particularly Uncas and Chingachgook, would gain little credence today, for generations of readers in America, England, France, and elsewhere, they represented a unique aspect of life in early America. Today, The Last of the Mohicans is probably the earliest American novel still read for entertainment. This is a particularly nice copy in a near-contemporary binding, though, as usual, it was bound without the half titles. Bookseller Inventory # 14738
