MOSSES FROM AN OLD MANSE

Hawthorne, Nathaniel

New York: Wiley and Putnam,. 1846. early twentieth-century full green pebbled morocco, spine panels richly tooled and lettered in gold, gold ruled borders on front and rear panels, inner dentelles, t.e.g., marbled endpapers.. Some mild scattered foxing early and late, but internally nearly fine. and generally clean. Overall, a very nice copy in a well executed. fine binding. A seminal work of early American fantastic literature. by one of the two founding fathers (the other was Poe) of modern. American imaginative fiction. (#130662). First edition, first printings of both volumes. A re-bind (without the original wrappers) of first printing sheets with Smith and Craighead imprints present on both copyright pages and page [212] of volume two blank (in later printings page [212] is used as the title page for a publisher's catalogue). The second of Hawthorne's three major collections of short fiction published in his lifetime, and the best and most important of the three. Includes a number of classics, "The Birth- Mark," "Young Goodman Brown," "Rappaccini's Daughter," and "The Artist of the Beautiful." The other fantasy stories are "A Select Party," "Mrs. Bullfrog," "The Hall of Fantasy," "The Celestial Railroad," "The New Adam and Eve," "Egotism; or the Bosom Friend," "The Christmas Banquet," "Roger Malvin's Burial," "P.'s Correspondence" (apparently the first American alternate history story), "Earth's Holocaust," and "A Virtuoso's Collection." "The darkness of his vision of the human psyche gives to almost everything he wrote, even works which were not supernatural fiction or fantasy, a sense that its protagonists are acting in obedience to the Gothic manipulations of the dead but shaping past, that they can never simply flourish in the here and now. It is in something like this sense that so much of his work seems to have been treated as allegory: his characters are so in bondage to the stories they have been appointed to undergo that they seem to 'stand' in an allegorical relationship to symbolic events, rather than to live them ... In the end, the Hawthorne romance of predetermination casts a long shadow over the American Dream, telling us that we must both dream very hard and surrender absolutely." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 457.

Private owner's bookplate affixed to front paste-down. Binding. extremities rubbed, but overall quite presentable, some scattered. foxing and old damp stains to text blocks, latter mostly to lower. right corners, but internally very good and generally clean. Overall,. a fairly nice copy. A seminal work of early American fantastic. literature by one of the two (the other was Poe) founding fathers of. modern American imaginative fiction. (#148857).

An early rebind (without the original wrappers) of first printing sheets with Smith and Craighead imprints present on both copyright pages and page [212] of volume two blank (in later printings page [212] is used as the title page for a publisher's catalogue).

MOSSES FROM AN OLD MANSE

HAWTHORNE, Nathaniel

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.
