A VERY PLEASING COLLECTION OF HAWTHORNE'S MOST IMPORTANT WRITINGS. This set of Hawthorne’s greatest works is composed of printings from Patterson’s uniform “Library” editions, all very nicely bound. The dates of these printings coincide with Houghton’s edition of Complete Works printed in Boston, of which there was no British counterpart.
