Nice condition set of "The Life of CHARLOTTE BRONTE" - Author of "Jane Eyre," "Shirley," "Villette," &c. by E.C. (Elizabeth) Gaskell. 1857 1st American edition; D. Appleton and Company; New York. Complete in 2 volumes. Volume I features a frontispiece portrait of Bronte, as well as a "Facsimile of a Page of M.S."; Volume II features a frontispiece engraving of "Haworth Church and Parsonage" (the Parsonage being the Bronte family home where the sisters spent most of their lives and wrote their famous novels).

Both volumes are tightly bound with no cracks and no loos pages. Nice pages with only some occasional light foxing; name/date (1858) written in pen on both front pastedowns.
