About this Item: Philadelphia: H.C. Carey & I. Lea, 1826, 1826. First Edition of "The Last of the Mohicans,"Uncut, in the Original Boards[COOPER, James Fenimore]. The Last of the Mohicans; A Narrative of 1757. By the Author of "The Pioneers." In Two Volumes. Philadelphia: H.C. Carey & I. Lea, 1826.First edition, first issue, with the following points: in Volume I, the final "i" is present in the pagination on p. vii (sequence not determined), the pagination is present on p. 71 (sequence not determined), p. 89 is misnumbered 93 (as in all copies examined), and on p. 243, Chapter XVI is misnumbered XIV (as in all copies examined); in Volume II, the fifth line of the copyright notice reads "a book" (BAL State B, sequence not determined). Two twelvemo volumes (7 3/4 x 4 5/8 inches; 197 x 117 mm.). xi, [1, blank], 282, [2, blank]; [2], [2, blank], 289, [3, blank] pp. Complete with the final blank leaf (25/4) in Volume I, and with the blank leaf following the title-page and the final blank leaf (26/6) in Volume II. Uncut, in the original gray boards. Expertly rebacked (more than ten years ago) with matching paper spines. Title-page in Volume II aged to tan, now deacified. A little foxing, some light toning to some gatherings in volume II, dark stain in lower margin of leaf 17/2 (page 175) affecting lower margins of pp. 171-182, a few short marginal tears and small paper faults. Extremely rare in the original boards. This book is notorious for the poor quality of the paper, and even with the aforementioned issues this is a remarkably clean example of this classic of early American literature, certainly one of the best copies that we have seen over the past fifty years. Each volume with the rectangular pale blue bookplate of Augusta A. Smith on the front pastedown. 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.

About this Item: H.C. Carey & I. Lea, Philadelphia, 1826. First edition, first issue with page 89 misnumbered 93, Chapter XVI numbered XIV in Volume I (page 243), and page vii correctly numbered. Octavo, 2 volumes, bound in contemporary half calf over boards. In very good condition with some rubbing to the boards, the text is remarkably clean. These volumes were purchased from a California family who had owned them since the 1870s. Housed in a custom half leather box. "The 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. 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 100 34). "[Cooper's] sympathy is large, and his humor is as genuine--and as perfectly unaffected--as his art" (Joseph Conrad). It was the basis for the film, directed by Michael Mann starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Madeleine Stowe, and Jodhi May, Seller Inventory # 7392

About this Item: 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) 8vo, in very handsome contemporary three-quarter tan calf over marbled boards, compartments of the spines scolloped in gilt or tooled in gilt between gilt tooled decorated bands, each volume with red morocco labels lettered or numbered and tooled in gilt, additional gilt tooling at the spine tips. xi, 287; 276; 295 pp. A fine and extremely well preserved set, solid and very clean, the very handsome contemporary bindings sturdy and proper, small strip of the blank portion of the title-page to Vol. I clipped. 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. "This is the. most famous of the Leatherstocking Tales". (Grolier 100 Influential American Books, 34). Seller Inventory # 28870

About this Item: London John Miller New Bridge Street, 1826. First English edition, 3 volumes, 8vo., vi, 237; [4], 276; [4], 295pp., half-titles to vols. 2 & 3 (not issued with volume one), paper lightly age-toned, near fine, near contemporary crushed half-morocco over marble boards, a little rubbed and chipped but otherwise an exceptionally good set. The first edition (Philadelphia) of the same year comprised two volumes with the UK edition following about two months later. The English edition consisted of 1250 copies, set from advance sheets forwarded to London as they came off the press in Philadelphia. James Fenimore Cooper is considered to be the first true American novelist. His most popular work, The Last of the Mohicans, has remained one of the most widely read novels throughout the world and it, along with the other four novels that make up The Leatherstocking Tales, has profoundly influenced the way many view both the American Indian and the frontier period of American history. Deep in the forests of upper New York State, the brave woodsman Hawkeye (Natty Bumppo) and his loyal Mohican friends Chingachgook and Uncas become embroiled in the bloody battles of the French and Indian War. The abduction of the beautiful Munro sisters by hostile savages, the treachery of the renegade brave Magua, the ambush of innocent settlers, and the thrilling events that lead to the final tragic confrontation between rival war parties create a vivid picture of life on the frontier. As the idyllic wilderness gives way to the forces of civilization, the novel presents a moving portrayal of a vanishing race and the end of its way of life in the great American forests.

About this Item: 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.

About this Item: 1850. No Binding. Condition: Fine. COOPER, JAMES FENIMORE. (1789-1851). Prolific American author of The Last of the Mohicans and The Deerslayer. ALS. ("J. Fenimore Cooper"). 1p. 8vo. (NY, November 1850). To "Sayd" ("Little Saidee," the niece of his friend Henry N. Cruger). "On Tuesday, unless prevented by the arrival of Cousin Nina in town to hear Jenny Lind, I shall leave this at 7 A.M. for Crugerties - Socrates or Xantippe Hall - Harry is to meet me on the wharf and carry me home to dinner. My orders are to pick you up, by the way, and bring you on in my pocket. Clara, who is not to be dealt with so cavalierly, is respectfully invited to be of our party. I have been three times in Clinton Place within a week, and learned that you are happy where you are. You will be happier up the river, my dear, so see that your trunk is packed, and that you are on the wharf at ½ past ten on Tuesday next, you and Clara. I have heard a most atrocious tale of one of you Crugers. It is that Uncle Peter is married to Mrs. Romayne, he 76, she more than 70! I sent you the letter, reclaimed from the Philistines, that I write like a true man. Goodbye, Sayd. . ." James Fenimore Cooper was born to American merchant, land speculator and Congressman William Cooper, founder of Cooperstown in NY's Otsego County, in the Mohawk Valley. It was on the shores of Otsego Lake, surrounded by the Iroquois Confederacy which included the Mohawk, Onondaga, Oneida, Cayuga, Seneca, and Tuscarora nations, that he spent his formative years. He briefly attended Yale and worked aboard a merchant ship before inheriting his father's estate and marrying Susan Augusta de Lancey, who first challenged him to try his hand at writing a novel. Finding success with Precaution, fashioned after Jane Austen, he became a prolific author, issuing The Pioneers, the first of his Leatherstocking novels, in 1823. After spending more than a decade living with his family in Europe, Cooper returned to Cooperstown in 1834. Our letter, written from NY, mentions Swedish coloratura soprano Jenny Lind (1820-1887), who made her celebrated American debut in NY in 1850 as part of a tour managed by American showman Phineas T. Barnum. Lind enjoyed a sensational success, noted by Cooper in a letter to his wife from November 15, 1850: "'Have you heard Jenny Lind?' 'How do you like Jenny Lind?' are the questions that supplant 'Fine weather to-day' and similar comprehensive remarks," (Correspondence of James Fenimore-Cooper). It appears, however, that the novelist never heard the Swedish Nightingale sing as he wrote in another letter to his wife, seven days later, "I have not heard Jenny, and to-night is her last. Mrs. Field has sent me an At Home for to-morrow to meet Jenny, but I do not think I shall go." (ibid.) Saidee was the niece of Cooper's friend Henry Nicholas Cruger, Jr., himself the son of the governor of South Carolina and U.S. Congressman Nicholas Cruger. Cruger married New York socialite Harriet Douglas, at whose insistence he changed his name to Henry Douglas Cruger. His divorce from Harriet set a legal precedent long used in divorce law (Cruger v. Cruger). Following their separation, Cruger lived in Saugerties ("Crugerties-Socrates") where he lived on his brother Lewis' farm and practiced law. Our letter is humorously making arrangements for Saidee, who Cooper treated as an adopted niece, to visit Cooper's home in Cooperstown, NY, roughly 100 miles to the northwest. Harry is possibly his grandson Henry Phinney (1850-1851), the son of his daughter Caroline, who was born in February 1850 and is often referenced in his letters (Correspondence of James Fenimore-Cooper). Our letter jokingly refers to Greek philosopher Socrates (470/469 B.C.E.-399 B.C.E.) and his wife Xantippe, who is often portrayed as a shrew, and may be a veiled reference to Cruger¿s former wife. Folded with normal wear. Mounting traces on the verso. * All our items are sent via Federal Express. Additional postage may be requested. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 000806

"The second and most famous of the [five] Leatherstocking Tales, and the first in which the scout Natty Bumpo was made the symbol of all that was wise, heroic and romantic." Grolier American 100, 34) "Set in 1757, during the French and Indian wars, The Last of the Mohicans established Natty Bumppo (called "Hawkeye" in this novel) as one of the immortal figures of American literature and indeed of the American imagination. Like the magnificent landscape of forests and waterfalls in which he moves, Natty is here restored to the full vigor of an earlier period of life. With his role as frontier scout and his hunting outfit which combines white and native elements, he appears to inhabit a liminal space between the culture of his origin and the world of his friends, the native warriors Chingachgook and his son Uncas, the last Mohican of the title."
