Wolfert’s Roost And Other Papers, Now First Collected

IRVING, WASHINGTON

New York: G.P. Putnam, 1855. First American Edition. BAL 10188; first printing. Presentation copy; inscribed by the author, “To Miss Charlotte I. [Irving] Grinnell/ from her affectionate uncle/ Washington Irving/ Sunnyside March 26th 1855.” Front hinge mended, but fragile; very good. There are four binding variants described by the B.A.L.; no sequence is suggested or assumed, but the present copy conforms to none of these. Perhaps this binding, in green cloth with a gilt vignette illustration on the front board, was provided on copies for the author’s use; this one was inscribed a few weeks after its publication in February. In a custom quarter-leather clamshell box. While ms. pages, clipped signatures, and letters of Irving turn up regularly, inscribed copies of his works are rare.

Wolfert's Roost and Other Papers, Now First Collected

Irving, Washington

New York: G. P. Putnam & Co., 1855. First Edition. possible third printing Very good in the publisher's original blind stamped, green cloth covered boards with faded gilt text stamping on the spine and a gilt stamped sketch on the front board and with light yellow end sheets. The back strip has a 1" long closed tear to the cloth in a horizontal direction which has been professionally repaired. There is considerable wear and rubbing to the cloth at the head and heel of the spine with the cloth worn through at the head of the spine. There is a early prior owner's book plate on the front paste down and the rear hinge is cracked and separated. The rear hinge has been professionally repaired. 383 pages of text followed by 12 pages of ads from the publisher. Illustrated with a double frontispiece. A collection of 32 short stories or articles all of which previously appeared in periodicals or books. (Langeld/Blackburn, p. 44; BAL 10188) While the publisher's ads at the rear of the text are dated "Feb'y ., 1855" this may be a third printing as the publisher's address reads "10 Park Place" while the first and second printings show an address of "12 Park Place". It was in the short story, "The Creole Village" that Irving again coined a new phrase for the American public. It was the first use of the term "the almighty dollar".
