Hawthorne, Nathaniel; Lathrop, George Parsons (editor)
The Complete Works of Nathaniel Hawthorne [13 volumes]
Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1899. Riverside Edition. Leather Binding. Very Good. Over 30 b/w Illustrations / Plates (including frontispieces). 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" 13 volumes complete. Attractively bound in period 3/4 blue morocco, spinexs with raised bands and elaborate gilt floral tooling in Art Nouveau style, covers ruled in gilt, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers (spine faded to an attractive green, minor wear; previous owner's bookplate in each volume). The Art Nouveau gilt floral tooling on the spines has a particularly light-hearted sensibility that gives this set a lively shelf presence. BAL #7643 (the so-called "Riverside Edition"); edited, with introductory notes, by Lathrop; also notable for the reproductions of etchings by Blum, Church, Dielman, Gifford, Shirlaw and Turner.
Vendeur: Arundel Books [Seattle, WA, U.S.A.]
