HAWTHORNE, Nathaniel. MOSSES FROM AN OLD MANSE. In Two Parts. New York:: Wiley and Putnam,, 1846. First edition, one-volume clothbound issue [Clark A15. 1.c1--"third printing, Wiley and Putnam issue"; BAL 7598--"when issuing the book in cloth (as a single volume) the publishers used whatever sheets they had in stock, and copies in cloth, therefore, frequently are of intermediate status]. . Spine and corners worn and frayed, with few short tears and small chips on spine, text lightly foxed, few signatures sprung, but hinges and binding tight, text fresh and quite clean. A good to very good copy of an uncommon title. . Green cloth, pp. vi, 207; vi, 211 [with page 212 in volume two blank-- BAL states, "In the earliest printings p. 212, Vol. 2, is wholly blank"]. In Clark's survey of the type batter in both volumes, this copy conforms to his third printing. Clark also states "final leaf of vol. II removed before binding in many copies examined"-- this copy retains the final leaf.
