Twice-Told Tales

by Hawthorne, Nathaniel

Condition: Very Good


Philadelphia: David McKay, 1889. Hardcover. Very Good. 464 pages; some rubbing to extremities, corners lightly bumped; front and rear pastedowns have a library/Sunday school stamp on them but there are no other ex-library markings or associated trauma to the book; top-edge gilt; Hawthorne's short stories "rivet the attention [of the reader]. The style of Hawthorne is purity itself. His tone is singularly effective—wild, plaintive, thoughtful, and in full accordance with his themes.… We look upon him as one of the few men of indisputable genius to whom our country has as yet given birth." —Edgar Allan Poe, The Broadway Journal

Twice-Told Tales by Nathaniel Hawthorne is a collection of short stories, most of which are infused with a very New England gothic tone.
